The Hung Thai Marine Offshore Service Company on September 28 opened the Hung Thai logistic service - the largest and most modern fishing port in the southern province of Ba Ria Vung Tau.

The 30,000-square-metre port, built at a total cost of 150 billion VND (6.7 million USD), is able to receive 12 fishing vessels at one time, welcome boats with capacity of 500 HP and serve as a storm-shelter for up to 500 ships.

The port is comprised of a seafood loading and unloading zone, 19 assorting and trading stations and 39 kiosks. It also provides other services such as the provision of materials, equipment and petrol.

The Hung Thai fishing port will help ease the burden on the fishing port in Phuoc Tinh commune, which houses the biggest offshore fishing fleet in the province.-VNA
