At the meeting, a representative of Sojitz introduced the inter-city cooperation project of the Japanese Ministry of Environment to promote the development of smart green industrial parks. The project has been implemented for five years in 13 countries, including Vietnam.

Sojitz wishes to introduce the project to Dong Nai through its cooperation with Kobe city because the two localities share similar conditions in terms of industrial development, seaport, and airport services, he added.

The two provinces are suggested to cooperate in building a green, smart industrial park data platform, improving the efficiency of industrial waste treatment towards an industrial park model without CO2 emissions and energy saving.

Once implemented, the project will deepen the cooperation between Dong Nai and Japan’s Kansai region as well as improve the environment of the province's industrial parks.

Dong Nai provincial official Nguyen Thi Hoang assessed that the cooperation proposals by the Japanese group are consistent with the province’s goal of turning existing industrial parks into green and ecological ones.

She asked local authorities to coordinate with Sojitz to implement the roadmap it proposed for the 2024-2026 period.
