The fourth Vietnam Marine Trademark Forum themed “Economic potentialities and ecological environment of Vietnamese islands and archipelagos” was held in Vung Tau City on June 7.

Participants presented reports on building sea trademarks, studying lessons and opportunities for Vietnam to successfully implement its sea strategy, and exploiting sea potential for economic and tourism development, as well as climate change, and development orientations of localities having islands.

The forum provided a platform for managers, scientists, provincial leaders, and domestic and foreign organizations and businesses to share information and experiences in exploiting marine-based economic potential, protecting the ecological environment of islands and archipelagos and building marine trademarks for localities.

It helped raise public awareness of the role of marine areas in national construction and defence, and honour the trademarks of Vietnam’s islands and archipelagos.

Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Chu Pham Ngoc Hien emphasised that the Party’s resolution on Vietnam’s sea strategy considers the sea and island-based economy as one of five breakthroughs for maritime economic development till 2020 and beyond.

Tran Minh Sanh, Chairman of the Ba Ria-Vung Tau Provincial People’s Committee, said Ba Ria-Vung Tau was one of 28 coastal provinces with great sea and island potential. Therefore, building and promoting trademarks for environmentally friendly sea products is essential and in line with the national sustainable development strategy.
