VTV.vn - Wastewater treatment and tourism management at the UNESCO world heritage site of Ha Long Bay were among issues highlighted at the meeting business households in Hạ Long City, in the coastal province of Quang Ninh on Wednesday afternoon.

A report on the initiatives to develop a wastewater treatment system was presented at the meeting, based on the results of interviews and researches with large cruise companies in Ha Long on the need for a wastewater system in Tuan Chau Port. About 502 cubic metres of wastewater was daily discharged from cruise boats into Ha Long Bay. This wastewater was estimated to originate from different sources, including about 250 litres from each tourist staying overnight on a boat.
