Therefore, on environmental protection technology, Mie has valuable experience to share.

Environmental Engineering is one of the key programs provided by the Vietnam Japan University. In the future, to sustain economic development, Vietnam will have to address significant environmental challenges, which requires highly qualified human resources. The cooperation between VJU and Mie prefecture will enhance research and advanced technology transfer, human resource training in the field of environmental technology.
