The Water Environment Federation (WEF) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with two of Korea’s top water associations, the Korean Water & Wastewater Works Assn. (KWWA) and the Korean Environment Corp. (KECO). Intended to strengthen ties between the respective organizations, the MOUs were signed by officials in the Global Center at WEFTEC 2014—WEF’s 87th Annual Technical Exhibition & Conference.
Specifically, WEF, KWWA and KECO will seek opportunities for knowledge exchange and mutually beneficial support of each other’s publications, activities, initiatives and special projects to assist with a shared goal of protecting the environment and encouraging sustainable development.
“WEF is delighted about this important step to strengthen our connection with Korea through ties with these two distinguished associations,” said WEF Executive Director Eileen O’Neill. “As a result of these two new MOUs, we can look forward to more exciting opportunities to support our mutual interest in improved water management and sustainable practices.”
The MOUs were signed at the Global Center, which hosted 18 trade delegations from around the world to participate in WEFTEC 2014. As a location for networking and international business opportunities, the Global Center featured a dozen presentations from national and international experts about globally relevant topics such as resource recovery, energy and water, export success stories, technology trends, and more. Content focused on the examination of water market trends, challenges and opportunities within the European Union, the United Kingdom, China, South Korea, the Middle East, and North America.
