HÀ NỘI — Minister of Industry and Trade Trần Tuấn Anh has approved a plan to develop Việt Nam’s maritime industry and trade until 2025, with a vision until 2035.
Accordingly, industry and trade will be important economic sectors with high and stable growth, contributing to shifting the maritime economic structure towards industrialisation, modernisation and high-quality service and commerce.
The total average growth of industrial production value in coastal areas is aimed to reach 9.0-9.5 per cent a year in 2016-20, and between 10.5-11.0 per cent a year in the period of 2021-25.
The plan defined an orientation for developing potential sectors in coastal areas, such as coal mining and processing, oil and gas, chemicals, thermal power and renewable energy production and mechanics, as well as metallurgy and aquatic product processing.
Special priority will be given to the development of products with high competitiveness, those in global production chains in the fields of mechanics, electricity and chemicals.
Attention will also be paid to promoting export-import activities through international cooperation programmes, and developing modern commerce forms to expand export markets.
Logistics systems, wholesale markets of aquatic and farm products, as well as maritime transshipment and warehouse centres will be upgraded and constructed to meet the demand of internal and external goods transport. — VNS
