The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is proud to announce the completion of the environmental remediation of dioxin (Agent Orange) at Danang Airport. This achievement marks the end of the final phase of a historic, six-year, $110-million project between the United States and Vietnam.

The successful clean-up effort represents our long-standing commitment to improving the lives of the people of Vietnam including future generations. We are addressing a legacy of the Vietnam War, by working side by side with Vietnamese counterparts, and through this project we have advanced our strategic partnership, and promoted goodwill between our two peoples.

We now turn our attention to implementing the commitment of the United States to make a significant contribution toward the remediation of Agent Orange at the Bien Hoa Airport. We look forward to continuing our cooperation to support Vietnam on its journey to greater prosperity; promote even more free, fair, and reciprocal trade; and foster respect for human rights, religious freedom, and the rule of law.
