Gov’t to hire foreign consultants to evaluate expansion of Tan Son Nhat Int’l airport
Monday, 26 June 2017 02:21

PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc has decided to task the Ministry of Transport to hire foreign independent consultants to conduct surveys and evaluate the possibilities of expanding the Tan Son Nhat International Airport.

The decision was made on June 12 following a meeting attended by PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Deputy PMs, and the Ministers of National Defense, Transport, Construction, Natural Resources and Environment, and the Minister-Chairman of the Government Office.

The surveys and evaluation of foreign independent consultants must be carried out objectively and honestly to ensure the effectiveness of investment and land use and should be reported to the Government by the end of this year.

According to Minister-Chairman of the Government Office Mai Tien Dung, the Ministry of National Defense is ready to hand over land for expansion of the airport.

PM Phuc ordered the Ministry of National Defense to stop building all related works, including villas and high-quality tenements around the golf course near the airport, he said.

The golf course, inaugurated in August 2015, occupied an area of 157 hectares that critics say should instead serve the expansion of the busy airport.

The Government will consider various expansion plans in the “fastest, safest, and most effective” way with the “lowest investment volume” in order to ease overload at the Tan Son Nhat airport, said Minister-Chairman Dung.

Along with expanding the airport, the Government will also accelerate the construction of the Long Thanh airport project, affirmed Mr. Dung.

Monday, 19 June 2017 02:08

HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam National Shipping Lines (Vinalines) and Japan’s NYK Line Group will carry out a joint research on developing a transportation and logistics centre to serve industries in Cửu Long Delta.

The study will be conducted under a memorandum of understanding signed by the two companies on the sidelines of an investment promotion forum held in Tokyo on Monday.

The NYK Line Group, established in 1885 in Japan, offers international transportation service with a fleet of 852 vessels, especially bulk cargo on big ships. It also has interests in the real estate and energy sectors. The group has 67 representative offices in foreign countries, including NYK Line Việt Nam.

Vinalines is a leading shipping company in Việt Nam, and currently manages a fleet of vessels with a total capacity of around two million tonnes, which is 26 per cent of the national capacity.

The corporation has around 13,000m of container terminals, occupying 20 per cent of the total length of ports nationwide, with an annual loading and unloading capacity of 70 million tonnes of goods, or 20 per cent of the country’s capacity.

In the future, Vinalines has said that it would focus on offering logistics package services to customers, including sea port, sea transportation and maritime services, which is an important factor for competing with other firms.

Chairman of Vinalines Lê Anh Sơn said the two sides expected to boost co-operation on investment and development in the area of transportation and logistic services for input materials needed at factories and industrial parks in Mekong Delta (Cửu Long) region.

In January, Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc approved the corporation’s IPO plan, according to which the State will hold 65 per cent of the VNĐ12.3 trillion (US$540.42 million) registered capital of Vinalines, while investors will get the opportunity to hold the remaining 35 per cent stake. The IPO will be launched this December.
