Quang Ninh takes steps to develop seaport system
Quang Ninh has enormous potential to develop its marine economy such as a 250km coastline and many deep-water ports. The province has taken steps to improve the seaport system.
With its advantages, the province has positioned the marine economy as a driving force and spearhead of its service-industrial development. In 2019, Quang Ninh issued Resolution 15-NQ/TU with a roadmap for seaports and associated service development for 2019-2025 and 2026-2030, and up to 2045. Accordingly, it targets respective seaport growth rates of 17.5 and 18.5 percent for the first two periods.
Official statistics showed that for 2019-2021, the local seaports annually handled over 104 million tonnes of goods and raked in nearly 7.5 trillion VND (323.830 USD) from related services.
Currently, 13 ports in the province have been upgraded and added to the master plan for development of Vietnam's seaport system in the 2021-2030 period, with a vision to 2050.
This is a very important basis for prioritized land earmarked for logistics and post-port logistics services development, thereby attracting investors to research and develop local seaports.
The authorities have paid much attention to administrative reforms, creating the best conditions possible for ship owners and businesses to operate in local ports, while other competent agencies will coordinate to ensure security and order.
