VN to strengthen int’l cooperation for sustainable development of maritime economy

VGP – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has approved a project on strengthening international cooperation for sustainable development of Viet Nam’s maritime economy by 2030.

The objective of the scheme is to synchronously promote international cooperation activities on sustainable maritime economic development, aiming to mobilize and effectively utilize resources, knowledge and experience, and to maximize the support of countries, international organizations and partners, thus contributing to the successful realization of major objectives, guidelines, breakthroughs and solutions set out in the Party Central Committee’s Resolution No. 36-NQ/TW.

The project has set out six international cooperation missions, including marine and oceanic administration and integrated coastal zone management (ICZM); developing maritime and coastal economy; improving people’s lives and building maritime culture and a society that is associated and friendly with the sea; basic surveys, scientific and technological research, and development of maritime human resources; protecting the maritime environment, preventing natural disasters, and coping with climate change and rising sea levels; and ensuring national defense and security.

Regarding marine and coastal economic development, the project suggests investing in developing tourism infrastructure for key areas and engine areas for coastal and island tourism development, in addition to encouraging and facilitating all economic sectors to participate in the development of complex tourist service areas, large-scale service projects, high-quality shopping and entertainment centers, ecotourism, science tourism and community-based tourism.

Besides, the seaport system will be developed in line with a master and unified plan on a national scale in order to meet the requirements of national industrialization and modernization, thus creating a material and technical base to enhance the country’s international integration and competitiveness in seaport activities./.
