An Overview of Chinese Laws and Experiences for Vietnam on the Marine Environment Protection from Contamination Caused by Ships’ Garbage

Nguyen Van Truong


Situated on a crucial international maritime route, Vietnam has not only favorable opportunities to develop marine economy, but also challenges of responding to marine contamination caused by ship-source pollutants. Actually, Vietnam has strived to cope with this problem by enacting regulations on ship operations. Unfortunately, the current Vietnam legal system on marine environment protection is still limited and inefficient. Due to this issue, the article is written to give an illustration and analysis of legal system on marine environment protection of China, which has many similar conditions with Vietnam and actively participates in several international conventions on marine environment protection from pollution caused by ship-source. Furthermore, the main purpose of this paper is to synthesize useful and valuable experience for Vietnam to improve its legal system on marine prevention from contamination resulted by ships’ garbage.
