VTV.vn - The government has issued a resolution on an overall plan for the sustainable development of Vietnam’s marine economy until 2030, with a view to 2045.

Tourism features prominently in the plan, with investment to be made to improve infrastructure in key regions so as to boost tourism in coastal areas and islands.

Under the resolution, all economic sectors are encouraged to form large-scale tourism complexes, with shopping centres and high-quality entertainment services, as well as to promote eco-tourism and community-based tourism.

New travel routes to remote islands and waters will also be piloted.

Seaports will be developed to meet the country’s modernisation and industrialisation needs and to make Vietnam capable of competing with regional countries in port activities.

As part of the plan, Vietnam will continue to prospect for minerals, oil and gas and non-conventional hydrocarbon resources while enhancing extraction efficiency and protecting the environment and marine biodiversity.

Attention will be paid to coastal aquaculture using advanced technology and measures will be taken to reduce destructive fishing activities and promote offshore fishing aligned with protecting fish resources.

In addition, programmes will be implemented to cope with natural disasters, climate change and sea level rise while sea animal rescue centres will be established at several marine nature reserves.

The overall plan also includes measures to enhance the living standards of residents in coastal areas, and to protect coastal cultural festivals and places of interest.
