President vows better policies for fishermen
April 18, 2013, 09:50 AM
President Truong Tan Sang has pledged to make proper changes to policies to support fishermen, especially assistance in travel and petrol costs, and shipbuilding to help them generate higher income while safeguarding national sovereignty over seas and islands.

While talking with fishermen in Ly Son island district in central Quang Ngai province on April 15, Sang urged them to uphold solidarity going off-shore fishing as it takes them days, even months, away from the mainland.

He suggested local fishermen clearly locate the coordinates where they will fish and thoroughly apprehend international regulations and laws related to fishing grounds.

Participating fishermen have expressed their wish for a policy that is exclusively designed for fishermen encountering risks at sea.

According to them, the Party and State need to protect their legitimate right to work at the fishing grounds which belong to Vietnam ’s sovereignty, and the marine police must work to support fishermen’s operation.

Many recommended the State promptly invest in a frozen seafood processing facility as well as allocate capital to bring electricity to the island district.
