The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has decided to provide 3,000 Movimar satellites for offshore fishing ships in 28 coastal provinces and cities.

Of the localities, Kien Giang province will have 400 satellite receivers, the highest number, followed by Binh Dinh and Quang Ngai provinces, with 280 each. The receivers, provided under a French-funded project, will help fishing ships update weather forecasts and contact other ships and offices on the mainland./.
