HA NOI (VNS) — Vietnamese investors gained insight into Pyeongtaek port, an entrepot linked with other international seaports, in South Korea during a workshop in the capital on Tuesday.
Lim Song-hack, Director General of Pyeongtaek Regional Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Office, said the newly operational Pyeongtaek port handled a record 100 tonnes of cargo last year and has the potential to become one of the most dynamic and developed seaports in Korea.
Since Viet Nam and South Korea have concluded negotiations on a free trade agreement, the event enabled Vietnamese firms to obtain more information on business in the maritime transport and logistics sector. Vice President of the Viet Nam Chamber of Commerce and Industry Doan Duy Khuong said there remained significant room for mutual growth in diverse fields, but especially in transport and logistics. — VNS
