The Vietnam Maritime Administration has submitted to the Ministry of Transport a report on the adjustment of the country’s seaport system planning by 2020 and orientations towards 2030.

Accordingly, Van Phong port will be an international one. Besides, those of Ho Chi Minh City will be adjusted as follows: Hiep Phuoc port on the Soai Rap River will be the main to serve the Mekong Delta, and Cat Lai port area on the Dong Nai River will be the main for containerized cargo.

Meanwhile, wharfs on the Saigon and Nha Be rivers and docks on the Saigon river will gradually be reallocated. New stations will be built on the Nha Be river to receive international cruisers, while Vung Tau port will be an international gateway.-VNA
