HCM CITY — HCM City People’s Committee has issued a plan to implement the strategy for the sustainable exploitation and use of natural resources and protection of the marine and island environment to 2030 with a vision to 2050.

The plan outlines that the city will give high priority to develop tourism, marine transport and services, fisheries, energy, coastal urban areas, and other marine sectors as well as improve community livelihoods.

Cần Giờ, the only coastal district in the city, will be developed to become a high-quality leisure and eco-tourism hub by 2030.

The rate of solid waste collected and treated in the district will reach 100 per cent and the rate of urban wastewater treated to meet technical standards will stand at 40 per cent by 2030.

Under the plan, marine and coastal ecosystems will be effectively managed and protected. The city’s aquaculture growth rate will be maintained at 2.2 – 2.5 per cent a year.

The plan also focuses on planting forests along coastlines, preserving biodiversity, and improving the quality of the environment.

Marine resources, and seas and islands will be effectively exploited and utilised by 2050, driving the city’s green growth, biodiversity conservation, marine environment protection, and a society in harmony with nature. —VNS
