Vietnam makes more drastic efforts to end illegal fishing


Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung urged ministries, agencies and 28 coastal localities to make more drastic efforts to terminate violations of Vietnamese fishing boats in international waters within the next six months.

Dung stressed the point while chairing a meeting of the National Steering Committee on illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing on Tuesday.
