QTV - On Sept 27th, the Steering Committee of the project "Promoting Green Growth in Ha Long Bay, Quang Ninh Province" organized a meeting on implementing the plan of granting eco-friendly Blue Sail labels to the cruise ships on Ha Long Bay.

Blue sail label takes effect in 3 years

Blue sail labels are awarded to cruise ships ensuring 29 criteria of sustainable environmental protection and  tourism development. This activity is under the technical assistance project "Promoting the green growth in Ha Long Bay area", funded by JICA in the second phase, contributing to raising awareness of cruise ship owners; linking tourism activities with environmental protection on Ha Long Bay. Based on the review of cruise ships and the proposal of the Ha Long Tourist Board, the Steering Committee selected 30 ships to be evaluated and granted ecological blue sail labels, phase 2  by late  December.
