Maple Grove, MN (PRWEB) July 8, 2005 -- FlowSense announced today that it has
signed a teaming agreement with Vietnam National Institute of Labor Protection
to jointly pursue environmental projects in Vietnam.
“This teaming agreement provides both FlowSense and Vietnam National Institute of Labor Protection to cooperatively address occupational safety and health (OHS) and environmental protection, which are some of the most important issues regarding socioeconomic development in Vietnam,” stated Paul Smallwood, founder and CEO of FlowSense. “Our joint effort has been in development since FlowSense’s trade mission to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City in 2004, during which we conducted a series of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) seminars. We are dedicated to helping Vietnam build awareness in environmental protection, particularly in rural areas where local communities may not be familiar with harmful by-products such as carbon monoxide poisoning,” said Smallwood.
“We are very excited to have the opportunity to work with FlowSense, considering that the company is well established in the United States and has dedicated company resources to helping our country,” said Dr. Le Van Trinh, director of Vietnam National Institute of Labor Protection. “Mr. Smallwood, who grew up in Vietnam, understands the environmental issues facing the country. His passion and dedication in helping us is a win-win in our teaming agreement.”
FlowSense will be leading the cooperative effort aimed at obtaining funding from both public and private sectors. This funding will be used to provide financial aid for much needed projects including education, training, and preventative programs in both health and environmental protection.
