Afforestation Project in Bac Kan Province, Vietnam
Honda Vietnam Co., Ltd (HVN) began the “Forest Day” project in 2013 in collaboration with the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development in Bac Kan Province in northeast Vietnam with the aim of regenerating forests to enhance timber production. The timber is scheduled to be harvested in 2020 following ongoing grooming and protection of the trees by local residents. During 2013-2016, an area of 490 ha of forest was cultivated in Nong Thuong and Xuat Hoa in Bac Kan Province. This year (2017), HVN pledged VND 334 million to the project.
