By 2045, Viet Nam will become a powerful maritime country with sustainable, prosperous, secured and safe development; the marine economy will make important contributions to the national economy, contributing to turning the country into a modern industrial nation with socialist orientation; proactively and responsibly participating in addressing international and regional issues on the sea and the ocean.

Viet Nam has nearly 1km of coastline per 100 square kilometers of its territory, 6 times higher than the global average. This is a leading indicator in the world, contributing to affirming that Viet Nam is really a country with huge potential and advantages from the sea./.
