On behalf of the Government of Vietnam, the Central Steering Committee for Disaster Prevention and Control under the General Department of Natural Disaster Prevention and Control has received all the filters and will transfer them to these two provinces as soon as possible.

According to Director General of the General Department of Disaster Prevention and Control Tran Quang Hoai, it is a timely great help from the Government of Japan, expressing a good relationship between two countries and two peoples. The help is very significant in this time when these provinces are under bad impacts of floods caused by typhoon 12.
