NDO – President Tran Dai Quang praised the significant feats achieved by the Vietnam Coast Guard over the past few years while paying a Lunar New Year (Tet) visit to the officers and soldiers of the Coast Guard Region 3, stationed in the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau, on January 30.

The State leader asked Vietnam’s coast guard force as a whole, and Coast Guard Region 3 in particular, to proactively grasp, analyse, evaluate and accurately predict all situations, whilst consulting with the Central Military Commission and the Defence Ministry to recommend measures to the Party and State to safeguard sea and island sovereignty and create a peaceful and stable maritime environment for the country’s rapid and sustainable development.

He urged the coast guard force to boost its international cooperation and maintain the regular exchange of information on violations and crimes infringing upon Vietnamese seas, in addition to preventing ships in the UN’s sanction list from docking and anchoring at seaports across the Vietnamese territory.

The coast guard force needs to keep a close eye on the situation of Vietnamese boats operating in foreign waters, especially in the case of fishermen’s boats committing violations, in order to coordinate with the functional foreign agencies to settle any disputes in a timely fashion, President Quang said.

On the afternoon of January 30, the State leader visited and extend his Tet greetings to the workers in the southern province of Binh Duong, a locality with strong industrial development.

He asked the local departments to continue working closely with all-level trade unions to care for the spiritual and material lives of workers, especially those at industrial, economic and processing zones.
