Subject: [CPEO-MEF] GLOBAL: U.S. awards contract for Danang, Vietnam Agent Orange cleanup
Step forward for Agent Orange clean-up effort in Vietnam

October 1, 2009

HANOI — Efforts to clean up contamination from the wartime herbicide Agent Orange in Vietnam took a step forward Thursday when the United States awarded a contract to prepare for dioxin containment.

Working with the government of Vietnam, the US expects the project to be finished within a year, a US embassy press release said.
