Vietnam, located at the downstream of Mekong River, is one of the countries that share water sources with neighboring countries. A large part of Vietnam use underground water as a water source, but it is difficult to control the quality of drinking water due to high pollution. Compared to heavy precipitation, annual precipitation is concentrated during the rainy season, and natural disasters such as floods and typhoons are frequent in low-lying coastal areas, so water problems are being sought.

Therefore, this agreement is designed to strengthen cooperation through advanced water management technology owned by K-Water as part of the response to the climate crisis and solving these water problems.

Additionally, on the 14th, President Yoon Seok-dae met with the Vice Minister of Resource and Environment and the Vice Minister of Science and Technology during his visit to Vietnam. During this meeting, both parties discussed cooperation measures such as integrated water management to respond to the climate crisis using water resource satellites, solving water problems in the Mekong River basin, and establishing a smart network management system.

President Yoon Seok-dae stated his thoughts, "This visit, as a result, has shared many meaningful impacts in considering Vietnam's water problems together and drawing up practical cooperation measures," he added, "Through this, we will do our best to further strengthen high-tech exchanges in the water sector to respond to the climate crisis so that it can be a new year for international cooperation between Korea and Vietnam."

Meanwhile, the Korea Water Resources Corporation is leading the resolution of the global water agenda as a chair organization of the Asia Water Council, which includes 164 organizations from 24 countries. As part of the Water Project, Vietnam, one of the member countries, has promoted a project to build a water management decision support system for the Nhue River in Hanoi.
