Royal HaskoningDHV in Vietnam

Royal HaskoningDHV was part of the trade delegation that visited Vietnam last week with Dutch Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, Sigrid Kaag.

Royal HaskoningDHV joined the mission with a focus to further strengthen the relationships in water, maritime and aviation. The mission follows the visit by Vietnamese Prime Minister Phuc to the Netherlands earlier last year.

Being delta countries, both Vietnam and the Netherlands have many things in common. Vietnam is covered with a dense network of seaports, inland ports and navigable waterways, with a still largely untapped potential.

The Netherlands is one of the guiding countries in European inland waterway transport and port development.

Bringing together experiences in both countries in this field will enhance the development of a sustainable and viable multi-modal transport system, and contribute to closer economic ties and cooperation, said Royal HaskoningDHV in its release.

The Partners for International Business Programme Vietnam – Netherlands Waterborne Partnership (PIB VINWAP) is a joint government programme with a focus on the development of an inland waterway corridor as a multimodal transport network for sustainable economic growth.

Royal HaskoningDHV plays an active part in this program and will further support in bringing in Maritime & Waterways expertise and experiences in the transfer of know-how and capacity building.

As part of the partnership, the Inland Waterway Transport and Port Development Forum is organised on 6 February in Hanoi to address the logistics infrastructure requirements. Joost Lansen, Royal HaskoningDHV’s Senior Project Manager, presents two topics to the audience; “Governance Concept Dutch Inland Navigation Information Agency” and “Greening of the Fleet”.

At the end of the Forum an MOU was signed between the Dutch and the Vietnamese parties on Maritime Transport, Sea-Ports and Inland Navigation Cooperation.
