Project MORE helps Vietnam overcome war aftermath

  • ngày 14/09/2014

Vietnam is trying its best to overcome the consequences of post-war bombs and mines, for a peaceful life of its people – and actively supports Project MORE and its goal to form a generation of people free from misery.

The statement was made by Guy Rhodes, Head of Operations at the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) at a workshop on Project MORE held in Hanoi on September 12.

Project MORE is the result of cooperation of 15 countries in Europe and Asia. It supports policy makers in nations contaminated by war to overcome the devastating environmental impacts, particularly in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.

A representative of the Vietnam National Mine Action Centre (VNMAC) said the way of recovering from the effects of war in Vietnam has many similarities with regional countries and encouraged European countries to engage in the project.

Project MORE is a channel to connect experts, technical staffs, managers and policy makers for mine action cooperation, the representative stressed.

Vietnam highly appreciates the great significance of Project More and is willing to support and cooperate with other countries to carry it out successfully.
