Illegal advertisements cover many walls along the streets and alleys of the city.

Authorities have hence decided to remove or paint over these advertisements to improve the landscape of the city.

However, specific places will be allotted for advertisements for various businesses and causes.

The Department also directed the police to monitor three telephone enterprises, namely, Vietnam Post and Telecommunication, Mobifone and Viettel to implement the decision to discontinue services to subscribers.
