It is reported that the Vietnamese government is planning to build another container port on the outskirts of Ho Chi Minh City due to the continuous growth of container traffic, and is currently considering building multiple ports.


   Due to trade tensions between China and the United States, some manufacturers have shifted production from China to Vietnam, and the container traffic between East Asia and Southeast Asia (especially Vietnam) has increased.


   This growth has led to demand for port capacity. The Ministry of Transport of Ho Chi Minh City is reviewing four locations according to the 2021-2030 port development plan. The preferred location for this department is near the Longtou River in Pingqing Commune.


   The construction project consultant, Hang Hai Construction Consulting, said that the port will cover an area of 250 hectares and can accommodate up to 3,600 teu container ships.


   The transportation department said that this location is ideal because the port can be connected to the Long Thanh Expressway under construction. HNA needs to evaluate how to provide container yard and logistics services for Xingang.


   The second option is a 50-hectare piece of land on the bank of the Dragon Head of Qing'an Commune. The proposal was rejected due to its proximity to a nature reserve and lack of road connections.


   The third option is a 150-hectare natural deep-water base in Longhe Commune, which can accommodate up to 10,000 teu container ships.


  If you choose this option, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment will need to provide guidance because the location is close to the Can Gio Biosphere Reserve.


   The fourth option is a 100-hectare natural deep-water base near Ong Cho Island, next to Cai Mep Port, which can load and unload ships up to 20,000 TEU.
