A Phnom Penh resident was among the six winners of a green campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of disposing plastic waste in the river as the Mekong River Commission (MRC) on Friday commemorated the 24th anniversary of the signing of the agreement that led to its creation.
A ceremony was held in Lao capital Vientiane to commemorate the anniversary of the signing of the Agreement on the Cooperation for the Sustainable Development of the Mekong River Basin by Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam in 1995.
Some 100 people including Lao government and embassy officials, and MRC development partners and staff attended the event.
