Port Planning and Design Asia
Venue: To Be Confirmed
|Event Date/Time: Feb 16, 2011||End Date/Time: Feb 17, 2011|
Ports in Vietnam are expected to double in the amount of cargo handled in the next 10 years. In previous yearsâ€™ government support and funding has been divided up between many Vietnamese ports due to all having a legitimate claim for assistance. As a result, the distribution of limited funds across many projects has hindered large and much needed infrastructure works, port expansions and foreign / private investment.
Over the past 4 years the government has taken action and invested in large scale works on several ports as they become increasingly aware of the impact that key projects can and will make to the countryâ€™s economic development. Since 2006 there has been more than 10 foreign companies invest in Vietnam port projects.
Ports Planning & Design Asia will look at the planning and design principles required in constructing and developing a fully functioning port from a greenfield, existing site or an expansion on a current operational port.
The conference will provide those companies looking to establish links with Vietnamese Port Authorities, port owners and those that already play in the port development industry the chance to meet, showcase and educate.
This conference is not just for interested parties in Vietnam. It will also cater to Hong Kong, China, Singapore, India, Taiwan and Malaysia
