PHU YEN (VNS) — The central province of Phu Yen will complete the preparations for a major Vietnamese seafood festival before March 25, provincial Vice Chairman Tran Quang Nhat said at a press conference.

The seafood festival this year will be held under the theme "Viet Nam seafood-integration and development," and will mark the 55th anniversary of the traditional fisheries sector and the 39th anniversary of the province's liberation, both of which fall on April 1.

According to the organisers, the festival, which will be attended by representatives from 28 coastal cities and provinces nationwide, will host several economic activities, such as investment promotion, the joint development of trade and aquaculture, and tourism promotion.

The festival, costing VND10 billion ($470,000), will take place over six days from March 28. — VNS
