A meeting between Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE) and The Law and Policy of Sustainable Development Research Center (LPSD) relating to the 1517 / GP-BTNMT license granted by MONRE allowed Vinh Tan 1 Power Company Limited to sink dredged material into Binh Thuan Sea.

          On the afternoon of August 15, 2017, representatives of MONRE and representatives of LPSD had a meeting related to LPSD request Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment to cancel Decision Approval of License No. 1517 / GP-BTNMT dated 23/06/2017 allows Vinh Tan 1 Power Company Limited to sink dredged material into Binh Thuan Sea for Vinh Tan 1 Thermal Power Plant.

 

          Previously, on July 19, 2017, LPSD sent a letter of notification and comment to MONRE on the initiation of administrative lawsuit approving license No. 1517 / GP-BTNMT dated June 23, 2017. On August 09, 2017, the Legal Department- MONRE responded and indicated the direction of the Government Office, MONRE to propose a meeting with the LPSD to discuss issues mentioned in the letter.

          The meeting was attended by the leaders of the Legal Department, the representatives of the Sea and Islands Administration, the Environment Inspectorate of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, the representatives and experts and consultants of LPSD. The meeting was held in the spirit of enhancing understanding and clarifying legal provisions on submergence licensing in the Sea. At the meeting with the LPSD, MONRE provided information that MONRE agreed with Binh Thuan Provincial People's Committee not to sink 1m3 of dredged sludge from Vinh Tan Electricity Co., Ltd into Tuy Phong sea area. This volume of dredged sludge will be poured into the area of Vinh Tan General Port. This option is awaiting official approval from the Government.

          The LPSD greatly appreciated MONRE's cooperation in organizing the meeting to clarify the regulations on submergence licensing in the Sea and MONRE's consideration of alternatives to submergence. At the same time, the LPSD is very interested in overcoming obstacles in the implementation of the legal framework and believes that the alternatives that MONRE will select should be carefully considered and assessed. LPSD wishes to continue to work with MONRE to address these limitations. In the case of Vinh Tan, the LPSD will continue to follow up to receive official government approval information on alternatives and the implementation of this alternative.
