Container cargo through seaport keeps high growth 

According to the Vietnam Maritime Administration, in the first nine months of 2021, the total throughput of goods through Vietnam’s seaports is estimated at more than 535.7 million tons, up 3% over the same period in 2020.

Over the past time, although goods through many significant seaports in the South have been strongly affected by the COVID-19 epidemic, the total volume of container cargo through seaports nationwide has maintained a double-digit growth rate, estimated to reach nearly 18.6 million TEUs, up 15% over the same period last year. In which exports are estimated at more than 6 million TEUs (up 13%), imports are estimated at more than 6.1 million TEUs (up 18%), domestic goods are estimated at more than 6.3 million TEUs (up 13%).

Previously, in the first eight months of 2021, most seaport areas with a large volume of container cargo throughput has experienced positive growth. Vung Tau area increased by 28%. Dong Nai area increased by 17%. Ho Chi Minh City increased by 11%. Hai Phong area increased by more than 15%.

Despite implementing social distancing according to Directive No. 16/CT-TTG of the Prime Minister, some seaport areas have a considerable cargo throughput and maintain the growth rates. For example, Ho Chi Minh City’s size increased by more than 7%; Vung Tau area increased by 5%; Hai Phong area increased by nearly 11.7% over the same period in 2020.

Also related to seaports, the Prime Minister has just approved the master plan for developing Vietnam’s seaport system from 2021 to 2030, with a vision to 2050.

Accordingly, Vietnam’s seaport system in the new phase will be divided into five groups instead of 6 groups of seaports as in the previous period.

The first group includes five seaports: Hai Phong, Quang Ninh, Thai Binh, Nam Dinh, and Ninh Binh. The second group consists of 6 seaports: Thanh Hoa, Nghe An, Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, and Thua Thien – Hue.

The third one comprising eight seaports: Da Nang (including Hoang Sa island district), Quang Nam, Quang Ngai, Binh Dinh, Phu Yen, Khanh Hoa (including Truong Sa island district), Ninh Thuan, and Binh Thuan.

The fourth group features five seaports: Ho Chi Minh City, Dong Nai, Ba Ria – Vung Tau, Binh Duong, and Long An.

The last group includes 12 seaports: Can Tho, Dong Thap, Tien Giang, Vinh Long, Ben Tre, An Giang, Hau Giang, Soc Trang, Tra Vinh, Ca Mau, Bac Lieu, and Kien Giang.

According to the approved plan, the total investment capital for the seaport system by 2030 is about 313,000 billionVND and is mainly mobilized from non-budget sources, corporate capital, and other legal capital sources. State budget capital is concentrated for public maritime infrastructure; key areas, creating spillover and attracting investment.
