The Mekong Delta province of Long An in southern Vietnam plans to set up six logistics centers to meet transportation needs and export and import demands, according to the provincial Department of Industry and Trade.
The centers are also expected to help local firms improve their competitiveness, the department said.
Two of the centers, located in Thanh Phu Commune in Ben Luc District, and Long An international port in Can Giuoc District, have already been put into operation.
Two more logistics centers will be located in Ben Luc District, specifically in the Thanh Loi and Luong Hoa communes. Together with the center in Thanh Phu, they will occupy a total area of 1110 hectare.
The others will be established in the Bình Hiep international border gate economic zone and the My Quy Tay border gate economic zone.
All of the centers are to be connected to roads, waterways and sea routes, providing transportation, logistics and goods distribution services.
Apart from building logistics centers, Long An has taken measures to develop a competitive, multimodal transportation sector where information technology is optimized, reported Vietnam News Agency.
At the same time, it has worked to speed up the implementation of major transport projects to complete the transport infrastructure system connecting industrial clusters and parks with the Long An international port, thus meeting the travel and transportation needs of people and businesses.
Long An is strategically situated in the Southern Key Economic Region of Vietnam. It serves as a bridge between Ho Chi Minh City in the north and 12 provinces in the Mekong Delta in the south. The province also has Cambodia to its west and the East Sea to its east.
The Southern Key Economic Region is one of four Key Economic Regions (KERs) in the country, the others being the Northern, Central, and Mekong Delta regions. The KERs cover the majority of economic and investment hubs in the country.
The Southern KER is a leading zone for advanced manufacturing that encourages investments in knowledge-based and high-tech industries and services. The key sectors include electronics, software, IT, telecom, hi-tech agriculture production, and processing.
