All activities related to loading and unloading goods in Ha Long Bay will completely stopped in December, said northern Quang Ninh province People's Committee Deputy Chairman Dang Huy Hau.

Hau said these activities not only harm the beauty of the bay and make waterway transportation difficult, especially for travelling boats, but also pollute the environment. After December, loading and unloading will take place in Hon Net Port in Cam Pha city.

Ha Long Bay has become a popular place for loading and unloading because it has a deep sea level and is protected from strong winds.-VNA
