Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) has recently sent a document to local departments of culture, sports and tourism in several central coastal provinces asking them to ensure safety for tourism activities in the context of a recent mass fish death incident.

The VNAT said that from April 6 to 18, a significant number of sea fish and farmed fish was found dead along beaches in Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Quang Tri and ThuaThien-Hue provinces without reasons, causing economic losses, and affecting the environment, seafood production and business as well as tourism activities.

The administration proposed the departments and relevant agencies update and publicise information about the environment and food safety issues with the aim of ensuring tourists’ health, especially during the holidays on the occasion of the anniversary of National Reunification Day ( April 30 ) and the National Labour Day (May 1).

The VNAT also suggested local tourism enterprises diversify tourist products and improve tourist services to attract more tourists.-VNA
