Sharing about the status of fake gasoline and oil trading for consumers is happening in Vietnam and other countries today, Mr. Shin Ky Ho shared solutions that Korea has applied to handle this situation. South Korea has experienced a number of explosive gasoline car accidents, detecting the sale of counterfeit gasoline to consumers in 2010 and 2011. However, that situation was resolved when Korea strictly controlled the use of solvents (the main raw material in petroleum). The strict management of the solvent has minimized the use of fake gasoline. Besides, Korea has used petroleum quality analysis technology with simple measuring equipment to compare with equipment in the petrol business units. One more practical solution to overcome this situation is administrative punishment, revocation of business registration petroleum sales.
The project to support Vietnam in building a quality management system for petroleum has been approved by the Government of Korea through the Ministry of Knowledge Economy (MKE), which will be implemented from May to December 2010.
