It is according to Decision 892 formulated on July 26 by the Prime Minister to approve a scheme on the development of marine economic clusters associated with building strong centers by 2030.
The scheme aims to build seven marine economic clusters in the next ten years in advantageous coastal areas and develop three to four leading maritime economic centers in the Southeast Asian region.
The clusters will prioritize services, products with added value; attract large-scale enterprises and high-tech projects to contribute to green growth; and protect the marine ecological environment as well as the marine economy.
They are also expected to contribute to consolidating and strengthening national defense and security in seas and islands.
Notably, developing sea and island tourism is one of the priorities for effectively tapping the potential and strengths of tourism resources in each region and the entire coast of Vietnam.
In particular, the scheme spotlights the importance of tourism-based economy development with eco-tourism and leisure centers, complexes and sea and island resorts that meet international standards in the central region, the southwestern coastal area (Kien Giang - Ca Mau) and other areas with suitable conditions.- (VLLF)
