The purpose of this study was to present several environmental case studies in Vietnam and public (state) administration for environment protection. Authors also evaluated environment protection in industrial parks under the governed law. Theoretical framework was in accordance with applicable regulations/law and practices. Issues related to environmental management will make best use of opportunities (or all potentials) to achieve/set best objectives. This study used qualitative and analytical methods, descriptive method, while combined with case studies, historical and synthesis methods. This study also presented some cases of environmental pollutions, which authorities resolutely organized the implementation of measures to handle violations of the law on environmental protection. In conclusion, It would suggest that relevant ministries and branches need to review and amend a number of relevant laws, such as the Law on Sanctions of Administrative, the Law on Inspection, the Law on Water Resources, the Law on Science and Technology, etc. State management of the environment is understood as the process by which the State, through the performance of its responsibilities, duties and powers to issue measures, laws, economic, technical and social policies appropriate society in order to protect living environment and to develop the country's socio-economic sustainability.
