A wharf capable of serving 30,000 DWT vessels was put into service at Go Dau Port in the southern province of Dong Nai on September 23 after one year of construction.

The 187 billion VND (8.2 million USD) wharf, built by the Dong Nai Port JSC, accommodates a bridge measuring 250 metres in length and 22 metres in width.

Included in the detailed plan on the seaport group No. 5 approved by the Prime Minister, the wharf will serve demands of businesses in the Go Dau Industrial Park and adjacent zones with a total capacity of nearly 4.4 million tonnes of cargos annually.

The Vietnam Seaport Development Master Plan was approved in late 2009 with the aim of developing a nationwide seaport network that will ensure smooth flow of export and import goods.

There are currently 39 seaports across the country, which are divided into six groups on the basis of their geographical locations.

The estimated volume of goods transported annually via the system by 2015 is 500-600 million tonnes. The figure is expected to double by 2020 and stand at 2,100 million tonnes by 2030.-VNA
