The Saigon Times

Lien Chieu seaport urgently seeking investment


The quantity of general cargo handled by Danang seaport this year will grow by 16.2% on-year (22.6% for container shipments). The load is estimated to reach 10 million tonnes in 2020 and 30 million tonnes in 2030. Correspondingly, from 2020, the load will exceed not only the handling capacity of Tien Sa Port but also of transport infrastructure in the city centre, causing serious traffic congestion and badly affecting the environment as well as tourism growth. Tien Sa Port is getting full to bursting and cannot be expanded, thus it is imperative to construct Lien Chieu Port and replace Tien Sa Port as the international gateway to the country. Danang city is stepping up the construction of Lien Chieu Port, however, it is struggling to mobilise capital.
