U.S. Ambassador David Shear speaks at the launch of Ha Long Bay Alliance.
April 15, 2014

HANOI, April 15, 2014 -- The U.S. Embassy, in cooperation with Quang Ninh People’s Committee, today launched the “Ha Long Bay Alliance,” a joint public-private effort that will bring together U.S. and Vietnamese government officials, private sector business partners, and key local and national stakeholders to help preserve and protect Ha Long Bay. The Alliance will be supported with funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

Ha Long Bay is one of Vietnam’s major international tourist attractions and a natural UNESCO World Heritage Site. It also sustains a range of other economically important activities such as aquaculture, fisheries, harbor, mining and transportation. These economic development activities have increasingly placed pressure on the Bay, degraded the environment, and made the livelihoods of communities who are dependent on the Bay more vulnerable.

The Ha Long Bay Alliance aims to foster cooperation to ensure the sustainability of the Bay by raising the awareness and capacity of local nongovernmental and governmental organizations to effectively manage natural resources.
