A delegation of the New Zealand Society on Large Dams (NZSOLD) including:
* Dr. Noel Trustrum, Business Development Manager of Natural Hazards, GNS Science (The New Zealand Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences),
*Dr. Kelvin Berryman, Principal Scientist, Section Manager, GNS Science,
paid a visit at the VNCOLD Office on April 7th, 2008.
They were much welcome by Prof. Dr(sr). Pham Hong Giang, VNCOLD Chairman and members of the VNCOLD Secretariat.
The talk between VNCOLD & NZSOLD was about the topics of the earthquake impact on dam safety in Vietnam, South East Asia & New Zealand. The both sides intended to hold jointly a Workshop on that topics in August, 2008, in Hanoi.
The Project on the Earthquake & Tsunami Access in Vietnam has been carried out by GNS. It would be much better to have a next project of joint research between GNS and Vietnamese partners involving agencies, which are organization members of VNCOLD.
