Ba Ria-Vung Tau (VNA) - The Party Committee and People’s Committee of southern Ba Ria-Vung Tau province has officially put into operation a hotline and an email address to receive opinions and proposals from local organisations, businesses and residents.

Organisations or individuals can call 088.880.0247 or send email(s) to any time of the day or week.

Nguyen Van Chinh, head of the provincial Party Committee’s office, said the hotline and email address had been launched to effectively implement provincial administrative reform and improve the capacity and the services offered by the administrative bodies.

Investors, enterprises and residents can propose measures to develop the province, report cases related to political security, social safety, order and express dissatisfaction on the work done by public servants.

The feedback will be forwarded to the authorised agencies for further action.

"The provincial Party Committee will issue a specific regulation on the operation of the hotline and ensure those who fail to record information are penalised," Chinh said.

Meanwhile, in a related report, Mai Ngoc Thuan, Secretary of the Vung Tau city Party Committee, urged the city’s authorised agencies to continue their efforts to maintain the safety and the cleanliness of the beach.

The ban on all food businesses on the city’s beach – mostly seafood BBQ provided by local tourism cooperatives – officially came into effect last month.

Reports by the Vung Tau People’s Committee reveal there were some 100 businesses, under the management of the two largest tourism cooperatives Vung Tau and Thuy Van, which rented beach chairs and provided cooking services to the beachgoers. These businesses failed to keep the beach clean, leading to an adverse effect on the sea environment.

In a recent official dispatch, Thuan also called for the setting up of a team responsible for patrolling and imposing fines on those violating beach regulations.

The city’s Party Committee leader also ordered the establishment of a new cooperative to ensure environment protection and sustainable tourism development of the coastal city. The new cooperative will include members from the local tourism cooperatives of Vung Tau and Thuy Van, who used to operate businesses on the beach.-VNA
