EIs
system was proposed in Ho Chi Minh City (

): 1) revenue generating instruments: focusing on study and application of user charges; 2) investment stimulating instruments: doing more researches on incentive policies to encourage investment from private sectors, particularly in collection and treatment of industrial solid waste-hazardous waste (
ISW-HW
); 3) behaviour modification instruments: accelerating supported instrument – general public education; announcing polluter blacklists; subsequently, doing researches on and developing deposit-refund system; compiling and publishing lists of products required reimbursing manufacturers after use.
