Vietnam Opens its First Deep-water Terminal

Vietnam  has taken another step toward overcoming its infrastructure deficiencies by opening its first modern deep-water container harbor in the seaport and resort city of Vung Tau — just East of Ho Chi Minh City.

The $250 project, three years in the making, includes a wharf more than a third of a mile long and is Vietnam’s first terminal that can receive container ships anchored at a depth of 45 feet.

The first of more than 100 ships received as the port was being developed was a 131,000 ton vessel from Columbia, the largest ever anchored in Vietnam.  The harbor development is an important step in Vietnam’s ambitious global trade expansion.
