Hanoi (VNA) – Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai has agreed to adjust a plan on developing Vietnam’s dry port system to 2020, with a vision to 2030.

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung asked the Ministry of Transport to preside over and collaborate with relevant ministries, offices, and localities to conduct research and set up adjustments in the plan.

The PM also urged the ministry to implement agreements on construction investment and announcement to open dry ports, including an investment project on a dry port conducted by the Saigon Newport Corporation, in accordance with regulations.

According to the Ministry of Transport, the current plan has proven insufficient, as several localities have demand for dry ports, but they have not been part of the plan.

Earlier, the Saigon Newport Corporation asked for investment permission on a dry port in Phu Thanh commune, Duc Trach district in the southern province of Dong Nai, which was not in the existing plan.-VNA
