Government to combat environmental pollution in craft villages


QĐND – Monday, January 10, 2011, 20:44 (GMT+7)

PANO – Deputy Prime, Minister Hoang Trung Hai, recently assigned the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, in coordination with other central agencies and localities, to draw up a comprehensive scheme on the treatment of environmental pollution at nationwide craft villages.


The Deputy Prime Minister also asked the Ministry to complete circulars on environmental technical standards in order to issue them in the third quarter of 2011.


According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, there are some 1,500 craft villages nationwide, of which 800 villages are located in the Red River Delta.


Meanwhile, results from recent surveys conducted by the Centre of Water Resources and Environment show that the environment of food processing, industrial and handicraft villages is alarming.  


Both officials and experts agreed that it was high time to immediately take serious measures against environmental pollution in craft villages in order to ensure sustainable development for the sector in the future.
