A dFrench businesses eye seaport and logistical services in Vietnamelegation of five French businesses will visit Vietnam from September 24-27 to seek investment opportunities in the area of seaport and logistical services.

The delegation includes Bolloré Group, port operator and investor; Egis International, engineering consultancy for international development projects; Freyssinet, specialist in construction and structure repair; Vinci Construction Grands Projets, world leader in concessions and construction; and WFS, operator of passenger harbours.

They will travel to Hanoi, Haiphong, Ho Chi Minh City and Ba Ria-Vung Tau, and have working sessions with the Ministry of Transport and Vietnam’s major ship owners and port operators.

The mission aims to have a better understanding of Vietnam’s policies for foreign investment in seaport construction and logistical services and to develop the partnership between French and Vietnamese companies in a sustainable manner.

Sea transport is vital for import and export activities as Vietnam has its coastline stretching as long as 3,300 km.

In recent years, cargo handling through Vietnamese seaports has increased considerably, especially after the first deep-water seaport was inaugurated in southern Vietnam. Similar projects are getting off the ground soon.
