BUSADCO is the national leading business in technological innovation, obtains many achievements in the application of advanced science, techniques, new technologies in the movement of initiative promotion, technique improvement and environment protection; has contributed to the scientific and technical revolution of research and application in the field of constructing the technical infrastructure system of urban and rural areas as well as environmental protection when the current state of technical infrastructure is inadequate and unsynchronized.
In the conference on Development of Scientific and Technological Enterprise 2015, organized by the Ministry of Science and Technology recently, BUSADCO is one of 204 Scientific and Technological Enterprises issued the Certificate of Operation in the fields such as biotechnology, new material technology, mechanical technology for machinery manufacture – automation, environmental and agricultural technology … by the Ministry of Science and Technology. BUSADCO is also recognized as one of the national leading businesses in technological innovation, research and application of advanced science.
Hero of Labor, Dr. Hoang Duc Thao - Chairman cum General Director of BUSADCO said, he and nearly 800 staff have created 30 works of scientific research and useful solutions, created new technologies in 3/5 Scientific and Technological sector including 23 works being applied, 17 patents for invention and useful solutions as well as 16 Vietnamese standards were issued by the Ministry of Science and Technology, 5 Certificates of appropriate technology and allowed to apply all over the country were issued by the Ministry of Construction.

Dr. Hoang Duc Thao said: "Coming from actual situation, Vietnam regularly has to import equipment, machinery and technology from foreign countries. The import is necessary when Vietnam is not able to produce technology and equipment satisfying the requirements of practical production and life. In addition, there are many cases that the imported technology is old, outdated and inefficient, especially the dependence on foreign specialists. Facing the situation of weakness and shortcoming of urban drainage system in Vietnam, BUSADCO’S leaders concerned: What should we do to remedy the shortcomings with such a limited budget that we have to save with maximum amount to remain our operation? What should we do so that BUSADCO can contribute more to the overall development? Did not stop, be unsatisfied with the passive, perfunctory operation, the leader board determined to move on from our internal resources; for the reason, we mobilized and created all the conditions for the technical innovation which are formed from idea to implementation.”
The launching and organizing the implementation of emulation movements on initiative and technical improvement is the push to the needs and the passion for creativity inherent in everyone, every unit. As a result, there are dozens of initiatives proposed annually, including many greatly significant initiatives for economy and society. In order to actualize the initiatives, Busadco carried out the research, experiment and application depending on specific content, scope and requirement.

The leaders should be exemplary, to trust and create conditions for their subordinates to promote their activeness and creativity, create an open working environment and strengthen the individual role and responsibility.
