Besides, the harbour system will be built as planned with simultaneous design to meet growing demand in industrialization and modernization of the country and enable Vietnam to achieve integration and compete with countries worldwide.
The fisheries industry will focus on aquaculture in the ocean and coastal areas by applying high technologies into production. Extirpative exploitation will be prohibited so that offshore fishing will be boosted for assuring exploitation sustainability and marine resources development.
Production practices in aquaculture and marine exploitation will be developed to improve the production, quality, effectiveness, and suit the conditions of environment and marine resources. Fishermen’s livelihood must be enhanced and security and defense must be assured nationwide.
