Dubai-based port operator vows to expand business in HCM City

Dubai Port World (DP World) will continue developing the Saigon Premier Container Terminal Port (SPCT) in Ho Chi Minh City, said Rashid Abdulla, Senior Vice President of Asia Pacific DP World and SPCT President.

He made his remarks at a meeting with Tat Thanh Cang, Vice Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee on October 27 to learn about the City’s infrastructure plan in the coming time.

Abdulla hoped that local authority will pay more attention to Soai Rap River dredging and upgrading projects, enabling cargos to move in and out the Hiep Phuoc commune-based port more efficiently.

For his part, Vice Chairman Cang unveiled that the construction of Hiep Phuoc port urban area and roads that facilitate goods transport from South-eastern to South-western regions are underway.

Besides, the City is studying the feasibility of developing ports in the South-eastern region, he said.

The municipal leader pledged to offer the SPCT favourable conditions to expand its business and suggested the firm to evaluate cargo transportation demand by foreign corporations in Ho Chi Minh City.

During the meeting, DP World was also introduced to several other local infrastructure projects that are awaiting investment, including beltway, elevated highway and urban railway projects.

DP World is a company which owns ports around the world. It has a portfolio of more than 65 marine terminals across six continents, including new developments in India, Africa, Europe and the Middle East.
