Dredging Boosts Mekong Delta Economy
Transport productivity along the Vietnam’s waterways is expected to increase by 72%, thanks to the construction of ports and harbors, and dredging work along the Mekong Delta.
According to a Transport Ministry plan, the Delta’s waterways will eventually be able to handle 83 million tonnes of cargo a year. The five-year plan primarily focuses on developing needed logistics infrastructure.
Deep seaports will be added to the Mekong Delta to meet the needs of increased activity, like accommodating more container vessels, and the dredging works will also continue, announced Viet Nam News.
Construction, upgrading and dredging work will take place at various delta locations, including a buffer zone between Bac Lieu and Ca Mau provinces, the Plain Reefs, and the Long Xuyen Quadrangle in Dong Thap and An Giang provinces.
