At the ceremony, Mr. Nguyen Huu Chi – Chairman of the Tien Giang Provincial People’s Committee and Chairman of Tien Giang Committee on Transport Safety said that Tien Giang had 99 cross-river wharfs and 18 down-stream wharfs with 350 aquatic vehicles carrying more than five million passengers per year.
Most of these wharfs are licensed; however, there are not many high-quality passenger vessels and high-qualified vessel drivers.
Thus, the campaign is of great significance for the safety of boat passengers in general and school pupils in particular.
