The functional departments will make a complete technical inspection to make sure that boats are fire safe and have marine registered quality standards.
Deputy Minister of Transport Nguyen Van Cong asked operators of the high-speed boats to ensure their vessels have suitable fire fighting equipments and cameras in cabins to ensure passenger safety.
