HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam Inland Waterways Administration has asked the transport departments of cities and provinces nation-wide to strengthen the supervision of floating restaurants on waterways.
According to Trần Văn Thọ, the deputy head of the administration, the operation of many unlicensed floating restaurants is risky, affecting the safety of waterway transport.
The accident in Vĩnh Hy Bay in the nearby Ninh Thuận Province’s Ninh Hải District last month revealed the hidden danger of unlicensed floating restaurants in tourist spots.
To deal with the situation, the city and provincial transport department will work with the related agencies and local authorities to inspect and review the current operation of floating restaurants.
Unsafe and unlicensed restaurants will be shut down.
Restaurant owners will be guided to register and enforce the relevant regulations to ensure safe operations on the waterways. — VNS
