(VOVworld)-Dong Nai province plans to establish an advanced logistics network to serve the entire southern key economic region.

Under a blueprint until 2025, logistics services will grow 35% and contribute 15% to Dong Nai’s budget annually. 3 inland container depots will be built by 2020 and another 3 will be available by 2030. Dong Nai will also develop an IT system connecting with other provinces and cities to facilitate cargo transportation from the Central Highlands, the Mekong River Delta, and the economic hub of Binh Duong to Vung Tau port.

At a recent conference on logistics development in the Mekong Delta held in Can Tho city, the World Bank predicted a healthy growth for logistics services in Vietnam, citing increasing import-export values and retail sales.

“Lower logistics costs will help improve Vietnam’s competitiveness globally. A successful logistics industry depends on many factors including financial and human resources”, Deputy Prime Minister Vuong Dinh Hue told the conference.

A favorable location and an elaborate network of rivers and sea ports, highways, and railroads, and the future Long Thanh airport lays a strong foundation for Dong Nai’s logistics development.
