The Marine Police Department officially launched an online portal on August 20 in a bid to provide the public with insight into the operations of the Vietnam Coast Guard.

The launch marked a significant step forward in the force’s ongoing administrative reforms.

The portal will disseminate Vietnamese laws and information on the sea, thus raising the public’s vigilance to maintain maritime security order and sovereignty. It also helps promote international cooperation between Vietnam Coast Guard with their counterparts in the region and the world as well.

The website now has over 300 news items, articles, photos and video clips as well as 167 sets of administrative procedures.

Visitors can go to the link at to receive updated information about domestic and international news and events, marine police activities, public security and ongoing international cooperation work.-VNA
