            Within the framework of the decentralized cooperation between Brest and Haiphong, the Fonds Français pour l'Environnement Mondial (French Global Environment Facility) has agreed to finance Ha Long Bay’s contract project.

            The project’s contract is to be signed soon. Handled by the Agence Française de Développement (French agency for development), the project could be implemented by spring 2013.

            A delegation from Brest recently went to Haiphong.

            Over the past few years, Brest métropole océane and Haiphong People's Committee have been working together, with the support of Technopôle Brest-Iroise, the Littoralis consortium and the Institute of Marine Environment and Resources in Haiphong (MiTiN member), to develop this project.
