Earlier on the afternoon of the same day, the Department of Industry and Trade, the provincial Youth Union, and Hai Duong Power One Member Co., Ltd. jointly launched responses to the Earth Hour 2018 at Doc Lap Square (Hai Duong City).
With the theme "Today I live greener," representatives of leaders of the Department of Industry and Trade and Hai Duong Power One Member Co., Ltd. highlighted the meaning of power saving. It is not only to save costs for each family, agency, and unit but also to protect limited natural resources.
