Speaking at the exhibition, Deputy Minister of Construction Cao Lai Quang said the drainage system has not kept up the pace of urbanization and population growth. Water supply in urban areas only reaches 81%, while the rate of loss and water leakage is up to 26%. In addition, the volume of wastewater through treatment plants only 11% and the untreated wastewater were discharged directly into the environment, causing serious pollution.

 

Now the urban areas need approximately VND 185 thousand billion (about US$ 9 billion) for investment in new and renovated supply and drainage systems in urban areas all over the country. Meanwhile, investment resources, management capacity, community awareness, water pollution ... are major challenges for the water supply sector in Vietnam. Therefore, this exhibition is an opportunity to share useful information in the water sector in Vietnam.
