The event aims at sharing experience of manging seaports and maritime transport in the post-crisis period.

To convert the maritime transport into the leading sea-borne economic sector by 2020, the Vietnamese Government has approved a national sea transport development plan to 2015.

Accordingly, by 2015 Việt Nam’s sea-going vessel fleet will have the total tonnage of 8.5-9.5 million DWT and transport 100-120 million tons of cargo. The respective figures for 2020 will be 11.5-13.5 million DWT, and 215-260 million tons of cargo.

The total volume of cargo going through Vietnamese seaports is expected to reach 500-600 million tons in 2015, 800-1,100 million tons in 2020, and 1,600-2,100 million tons in 2030.
