QUẢNG NINH — The People’s Committee of Hạ Long City in the northern province of Quảng Ninh is cracking down on violations in tourism services to improve their quality.
The city authority has suspended Hoàng Nguyên Commerce and Tourism Joint Stock Company’s operations at the trading centre in Vườn Đào Market at Bãi Cháy Ward from Friday because the company sells goods of unknown origins to tourists.
The company was ordered to rectify its mistakes and strictly follow regulations with regard to tourism trading and services and submit a report to the local authority for approval.
The People’s Committee of Bãi Cháy Ward was directed to collaborate with the inspection team to supervise the company’s implementation of rules. In the meantime, Hạ Long Power Company and Bãi Cháy Water Supply Company were asked to stop providing electricity and water to them in case they failed to comply with the authority’s request.
On Wednesday, Market Management Unit No 5 issued an administrative fine to Vạn Linh Chi, a jewellery trading shop, for trading goods without clear origins.
Earlier in March, 13 enterprises were fined VNĐ19.8 million (US$867) for violations such as selling goods without a clear origin, trading of fake or smuggled goods and failing to publicise the price.
Quảng Ninh Province in general and Hạ Long City in particular have made great efforts in improving tourism services and ensuring a healthy tourism environment.
Vũ Thị Thu Thủy, deputy chairman of Quảng Ninh Province’s People’s Committee, recently issued a document requesting the chairpersons of people’s committees of provincial cities and districts to strengthen the management and supervision of tourism service facilities in their localities.
Accordingly, violations should be strictly dealt with, including the suspension of their operations. — VNS
