Vietnam: Environmental Sanitation and Wastewater Treatment Business Roundtable
Date: March 11, 2014
Time: 8:30am-12:00 PM EST
Location: USTDA Business Center (1000 Wilson Blvd, Suite 1500, Arlington, VA)
As part of a World Bank-organized study tour for senior officials from Vietnam, USTDA is hosting this roundtable for U.S. companies to engage directly with the delegation in order to discuss wastewater treatment practices and solutions in the United States. The broader study tour is part of the World Bank's planned Second Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) Environmental Sanitation Project, which aims to improve drainage and wastewater treatment of HCMC. The Business Roundtable will serve the dual purpose of informing U.S.-based companies about the upcoming project opportunities associated with the Second Environmental Sanitation Project and educating the Vietnamese delegation on U.S. wastewater treatment practices, capabilities, and technologies.
The World Bank loan of $450 million will build on the first phase of the HCMC Environmental Sanitation Project, and will finance:
- a wastewater treatment plant,
- remaining interceptor, and
- sewerage in HCMC's District 2.2
Vietnam's development plans indicate that the costs of meeting the wastewater collection and treatment goals for 2025 are estimated to be $10.8 billion. This will require an estimated annual capital investment between 2010- 2025 of around $700 million, presenting significant opportunities for U.S. technologies and expertise.
This Roundtable is being organized by Jacobsen Daniels Associates on behalf of USTDA. You may register to attend at www.jacobsendaniels.com/vietnamese-business-roundtable.html For additional information, please contact Genelle Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org or (734) 961-3200 x113.
