As many as 49 spring flower fairs will be organised in Hanoi from February 9 to 18 on the occasion of the lunar New Year 2015.

Of those, 21 fairs will be arranged in the inner area, with the remaining to be held in the suburbs.

In the past few years, numerous flower fairs have been held to serve the demands of local residents.

Apart from traditional fairs held on Hang Luoc and Lac Long Quan streets, a myriad of fairs are slated to take place in Thanh Xuan District, Cau Giay District, Ha Dong District, Tay Ho District and Hoang Mai District.

The municipal Department of Transport, the Hanoi Police Department and the municipal Fire Prevention and Fighting Police Department have been asked to implement measures to manage traffic congestion and prevent fire at the flower fairs.

Meanwhile, the district People’s Committees are requested to establish management boards of the fairs and coordinate with relevant agencies to ensure security and environmental hygiene at the fairs.

The city will work to prevent spontaneous flower markets to ensure effective operation of official flower fairs in line with city regulations.-VNA
