The provincial People’s Committee has instructed the department to coordinate with other relevant agencies in carrying out registration procedures for eligible boats in line with regulations set by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Apart from establishing working groups tasked with managing the fleet of vessels, the committee has asked local authorities to set up special anchorages for them.
