A workshop will be held in Can Tho in mid-November to discuss strategies for developing logistics systems in the Mekong Delta, which currently has few.

According to Le Van Hy, editor in chief of the Vietnam Logistics Review, the event will offer businesses and localities nationwide an opportunity to learn more about the sector.

It will focus on how to promote the development of logistics services in the region, push co-operation among logistics businesses operating in the area, and discuss plans to build a logistics transport network in the region.

Participants will also be given information on policies to attract investment in the field.

Regional connections and logistics development are expected to facilitate production and goods consumption in the region, making those more professional, thus reducing production and transport costs, and increasing the value of products.

The Mekong Delta boasts great potential for developing its agriculture and aquaculture, which contributes 50 percent, 65 percent and 70 percent of the county’s total food, aquatic and fruit output, respectively.

However, the number of businesses specialising in logistics remains limited, not yet meeting the increasing demand in the field.-VNA
