overcome sea environmental pollution, BR-VT province’s People’s Committee has
approved the campaign named “Sustainably exploiting and using resources and
protecting sea environment to 2020, vision to 2030”.
This campaign will be executed through 9 big
projects with urgent ones that need to be executed in 2014-2015 including:
controlling direct sewage along the coast and estuaries; inspecting, evaluating
coastal environment and environmental problems to serve socio-economic
development of coastal region.
The real surveys taken at some tourist
businesses within the province showed that just a few of constructions built
after the validity of Law of
Environmental Protection 2005 and luxury hotels and resorts which have over 100
rooms or at least 10 hectares in area and managed by provincial departments
well executed administrative environmental procedures. The rest have not had
sewage treatment system, especially hotels managed by district-level
departments. Therefore, the promulgation of this campaign will tighten
management of the State as well as regulations of environmental protection,
There were many local tourist businesses
executing effectively this campaign such as Grand-Palace Hotel, Anhoa Residence
luxury villas, Sammy Hotel, Bien Dong resort, Vung Tau Intourco Resort, Thuy
Duong, Ky Van resort and Lan Rung resort etc. Mrs. Nguyen Thi Thanh Truc,
Manager of Lan Rung restaurant, Vung Tau City said: “Protecting environment is
an important element that businesses have to obey for sustainable operation.
For this reason, we invested in a sewage treatment system and planted many
trees in our area etc”.
Provincial People’s Committee requested
businesses that have not executed this campaign yet to connect their sewage
system to general sewage system of the province by the 4th quarter
Provincial Tourist Association will
strengthen propagandas so that businesses have awareness of benefit and
responsibility in protecting sea environment.
According to the prediction of Department of Natural
Resources and Environment, the level of sea environmental pollution in BR-VT to
2015 and 2020 will increase remarkably if local authority doesn’t care about
environmental protection work now. The sea environmental protection activities must
be executed by relevant department from now on before it’s too late.
