Mekong Delta River Project

Files

In this response letter, Senator Williams responds to a constituent's inquiry about U.S. support for the Mekong Delta Project, a project announced by President Lyndon B. Johnson in a televised speech at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. The Mekong Delta River project would be similar to the Tennessee Valley Authority program in developing infrastructure along the Mekong River to improve irrigation, navigation, and bring hydroelectric power to the region.
