Exhaust fumes take toll on HCM City air quality

Date of Release:

Air pollution has been a serious problem in HCM City for a long time now, but polluters face no serious punishment because of a toothless Environment Law and lack of adequate equipment to measure the pollution they cause.

Exhaust fumes from vehicles, industry, and construction impact air quality the worst.

According to the latest study, air quality in six out of the city's 12 industrial and processing zones — Cat Lai, Linh Trung 1 and 2, Tan Binh, Tan Tao, and North-western Cu Chi — has worsened since last year.
