On occasion of ‘World Environment Day’ on June 5, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, Vietnam Fatherland Front and the People’s Committee of Thua Thien-Hue Province held a meeting to mark the event in Hue City.
On the occasion, the Vinamilk Company organized the planting of 20,000 saplings in Dien Mon Commune of Phong Dien District in Thua Thien-Hue Province under a program ‘Fund One Million Trees’ that was launched in 2012. The program was aimed at helping in creating a greener environment to prevent further climate change.
In 2013, this program will continue and more green saplings will be planted in other provinces such as Ha Nam, Thai Nguyen and Ho Chi Minh City.
In response to ‘World Environment Day’, eight provinces in Vietnam held a tree-planting ceremony including Ho Chi Minh City, Quang Ninh, Da Nang, Tien Giang, Hanoi, Hoi An, Quang Nam and Hai Phong Provinces, with planting of nearly 70,000 saplings.
