The objective of the workshop was to improve further the provincial regulatoryIMG_0015_small framework and to develop a roadmap of how to efficiently use the increased income of the company through the tariff collection in order to improve wastewater services in Soc Trang.

Soc Trang province is currently reviewing a local wastewater regulation that supports the implementation of Decree 88/2007 on urban and industrial wastewater management locally. The regulation is due to be approved by the Provincial People Committee in December 2011.

Experts of the Department for Technical Infrastructure in the Ministry of Construction (MoC) were highly interested in the case of Soc Trang and joined the workshop. MoC is currently reviewing Decree 88/2007 and seeking to integrate feedback from provinces into the revised decree.

The workshop was a big success, as it helped to further develop the roadmap for efficient wastewater services in Soc Trang.
