According to Suu, in 2015, the Prime Minister approved a plan to develop logistics center system nationwide, including two large-scale centers in Hanoi, one in the north and another in the south of the city.
To realize the PM’s planning, Hanoi will set up 10 logistics centers, while calling for investment in logistics projects at its annual investment promotion conference.
Suu also stressed the municipal authorities are researching to develop waterway ports in addition to building up inland container depot (ICD) so as to meet rising demand.
Having more discussion about measures to develop Hanoi into a major logistics center of Vietnam and the region, Minister of Industry and Trade Tran Tuan Anh said that the issue, under the cooperation program between his agency and Hanoi, would be deployed in the time to come.
He highly spoke of the capital’s attention to developing transport infrastructure and logistics system, as well as promoting start-ups and building logistics industry 4.0.
Mr. Anh expressed his hope that Hanoi would be a model in making logistics become a driving force for socio-economic development.
The Logistics Forum Vietnam 2020 was held by the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) in Hanoi on November 26, with more than 500 businesses attending.
