Delivering opening remarks at the conference, President of VUSTA, Dr. Sc. Phan Xuan Dung stated that: To Lich river which has adhered to the land of Thang Long - Hanoi for thousands of years of history, has been affected by serious pollution.

Therefore, it requires a political determination associated with comprehensive solutions to revive the river, otherwise it is likely to become a dead one.

Vice Chairman of Hanoi People's Committee Duong Duc Tuan shared that the inner rivers of Hanoi such as To Lich, Kim Nguu, Lu, and Set play a vital role in the city's general drainage system and also are of great value in terms of history, landscape, architecture and environment. These rivers are now severely contaminated while Hanoi has not yet to have a comprehensive solution to completely fix the problem, Tuan added. Therefore, in the strategy of urban renovation, embellishment, reconstruction and development, it is an urgent task for Hanoi city to revive To Lich, Kim Nguu, Lu and Set rivers in order to enhance the historical, cultural, landscape, architectural, environmental and technical values of the inner-city urban areas.
