A meeting in response to the World Environment Day (June 5) was held in the southern province of Binh Duong’s administrative centre on May 31.

Addressing the function, Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Bui Cach Tuyen stressed that this year’s environment day, themed “Raise Your Voice Not the Sea Level”, offers a chance for Vietnamese people to join hands to cope with the difficulties and challenges posed by climate change and the rising sea level.

The measures taken by the community will also help prevent the increase of environmental pollution and degradation, thus ensuring the ecological balance and country’s sustainable development.

According to Tran Van Nam, deputy Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, together with developing the economy, Binh Duong has paid special attention to environmental protection.

Protecting the environment and coping with the consequences of climate change is an urgent and long-term task for the whole community, he stressed.

At the meeting, the committee presented certificates of merit to 59 organisations which have performed well in environmental protection.
