Viet Nam has a large river and canal network, including over 3,450 rivers and streams with lengths exceeding 10 km. There are 13 large rivers and 310 inter-provincial rivers belonging to eight large river basins, with an area of about 270,000 km2 (accounting for 80% of the total area of the river basin). Of these, many rivers cross borders with other countries, such as the Mekong river systems (Mekong River), Red River, Bang Giang – Ky Cung River, Ma River, Ca River, and Dong Nai River. As a result, the country has an abundance of surface water resources.
