State management favors business & investmentState management favors business & investment
State management should focus on paying the most favourable way for people, investors, and businessmen to do business, said PM Nguyen Tan Dung.

The Government chief made the remark on August 19 while presiding over a meeting with the Cabinet’s standing members and ministry and sector officials on the lists of prohibited and conditional businesses, and those entitled to investment preferential treatments in accordance with the draft investment law (amended) and the draft enterprise law (amended) which would be submitted to the National Assembly.

The Ministry of Planning and Investment (MoPI) proposed a list of eight prohibited businesses instead of the current figure of 51. The Ministry also suggested cutting 56 of the current 386 conditional businesses.

The Cabinet leaders and ministry officials generally agreed with the MPI’s proposals, suggesting the Ministry to continue reviewing the proposals to ensure quality and feasibility in practice; people’s freedom right to business and investment; and the effectiveness of State management.

Addressing the meeting, the Government leader praised the proposals of the MoPI; requesting it to continue collecting comments and finalizing the lists of prohibited and conditional businesses.

He also noted the need to safeguard business rights of people and enterprises; develop market-driven economy, international integration, improve investment environment, sharpen national competitiveness; strengthen State management, administrative reform and prevent corruption.

Regarding the list of business sectors, industries and localities entitled to investment preferential treatment as prescribed by the draft laws on Investment and Enteprise, PM Dung agreed that such preferential treatment will not given to the mining of natural resources and minerals and about 40 other sectors, industries, products and services that are subject to special consumption tax./.

Creating new direction for Nhon Hoa lotusCreating new direction for Nhon Hoa lotus
Nhon Hoa lotus (Nhon Hoa commune, Tan Thanh district, Long An province) has been granted a brand name, but the output has not been stable over the years. This requires lotus growers to change their production practices to improve product value and create stable output for Nhon Hoa lotus.

Tạo hướng đi mới cho sen Nhơn Hòa hình 1 812021.jpg

Lotus growers are often forced the price by traders over the past years because they have not had a stable output

Currently, Nhon Hoa commune has 300 hectares of lotus, of which the most is in Hai Hung hamlet. In 2009, Nhon Hoa commune established Hai Hung Lotus Cooperative Group. Accordingly, the cooperative group registered trademarks for lotus, lotus seeds and lotus root and was granted trademarks. However, due to financial difficulties, warehouse, machinery, equipment for preliminary processing, storage and output of the product are not stable, the cooperative group is not effective.

Vice Chairman of the People's Committee of Nhon Hoa commune - Ngo Phuoc Xuyen said: "The lotus tree is suitable for low-lying and alum areas like Nhon Hoa commune, so it develops well, gives high yield and profits many times higher than rice cultivation. However, because the output has not been found, the price is still not stable. Most lotus growers have to sell through 2-3 intermediaries, so traders force the price. This affects the life of lotus growers".

Ms. Tran Thi Lai's family, living in Hai Hung hamlet, has many years of experience in growing lotus, but she had to give up the lotus-growing job to move to another profession. Ms. Lai shared: "The cost of planting 1 hectare of lotus is much lower than growing rice, it only costs about 3 million VND per hectare, but the harvest lasts 4 months. However, the price of lotus buds is precarious, it is sometimes only 7,000 VND per kilo, so the growers cannot afford to hire workers to look for them. Therefore, my family decided to let someone else rent 2 hectares of lotus land and find other jobs to do".

Tạo hướng đi mới cho sen Nhơn Hòa hình 2 812021.jpg

Ms. Dung (R) preliminary processes lotus into many products such as lotus powder, lotus flower, lotus tea, etc. This is considered a new direction to create a stable output for Nhon Hoa lotus

The most difficult problem for lotus growers at present is the unstable output, they are often forced by traders. This requires lotus growers to change their production practices to meet market demand and find a stable output for Nhon Hoa lotus. Ms. Ngo Thi My Dung, living in Hai Hung hamlet, understood this problem and bravely processed lotus into many products such as lotus powder, star-chain lotus, dried lotus, lotus tea, etc. Initially, these products received customer satisfaction and highly appreciated functional departments. Accordingly, Ms. Dung will be supported the machine for producing star-chain lotus and lotus powder by the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development in the coming time.

Ms. Dung said: "In Dong Thap, many farmers have made lotus products, sold at high prices and affirmed their brands, while the farmers in their hometown grow a lot of lotus but they sell at low prices. Sharing with local people, I decided to make many products from lotus. All products do not use preservatives, with high nutritional value, suitable for all ages. Hopefully, the growers of Nhon Hoa lotus will have a better life after being supported with machinery".

It is known that Ms. Dung's family has purchased lotus flowers and lotus mirrors for more than 20 years. After that, she sold lotus lotus to traders in Ho Chi Minh City, while the lotus seed-pod sold to traders in Dong Thap. During the flooding season, her family purchases over 1 ton of lotus root, 4-5 tons of lotus seed-pod on average each day. The selling price of lotus root and seed-pod in the flooding season is less than 10,000 VND per kilo. At this price, lotus growers will not be profitable. Therefore, it is very suitable for Ms. Dung to process the lotus preliminarily, this creates a new direction for Nhon Hoa lotus, contributes to improving income and improving the quality of life of lotus growers./.

Efforts to implement dual goalsEfforts to implement dual goals
The Covid-19 pandemic seriously affected many aspects of the country's life and socio-economy. The whole country in general, Long An in particular is focusing on the dual goal of "promoting socio-economic development, preventing and fighting against Covid-19". Along with that, businesses strive to overcome difficulties, restore production and business.

Nỗ lực thực hiện mục tiêu kép 2862020.jpg

After the Covid-19 pandemic, many businesses made efforts to stabilize labor, restore production and business

When a pandemic broke out, most businesses proposed plans to reorganize personnel and narrow production. Up to now, Viet Nam has basically been able to control the Covid-19 epidemic. Over the last 2 months, no new cases have been detected in the community. With the support of the Trade Union, enterprises are proactive in innovation, creation and production efforts; actively take care of the lives of workers, employees and prevent and fight against epidemics. Thereby, it contributes to the socio-economic development of the province.

Grassroots Union President of ShillaBags International Co., Ltd. (Duc Lap Ha commune, Duc Hoa district) - Le Cong Lap said: "Previously, during the outbreak of the disease, we promoted propaganda, gave masks, provided disinfectant hand sanitizer for workers to prevent diseases. When the disease subsided, the company tried to restore production and business. First of all, the company recruited about 70 part-time workers and proceeded to sign contracts to stabilize production.

Like other businesses, in the outbreak days, FuLuh Vietnam Shoes Co., Ltd. (Tan Kim commune, Can Giuoc district) implemented the plan to reduce the number of working days in the week and months; allow employees to quit their jobs naturally without extension of the contract upon the expiry of the probationary period and the expiry of the probationary period; terminate labor contracts based on approval criteria. Up to now, the company re-recruited workers to stabilize production from mid-April to the end of December 2020 and divided into stages.

Besides, Trade Union levels also coordinate to take care of union members, workers and accompany businesses in recovering production and business. Mr. Nguyen Van Qui - Chairman of the provincial Labor Confederation said: "Over the past time, the provincial Labor Confederation has promoted communication and disease prevention, mobilized the landlords to reduce room rentals for workers and campaigned sponsors to support workers. We also organize delegations to conduct a survey on the labor, employment and salary reorganization of workers affected by Covid-19 epidemic".

As noted by reporters, some businesses in the province reorganize their labor to focus on production and business. Despite many difficulties, businesses are gradually stabilizing, restoring production after days of "fighting" with the Covid-19 pandemic. It is thought that Trade Union continues to promote its role and responsibilities with the efforts of businesses,such as proposing businesses to pay attention to improving working conditions for workers, reorganizing production locations, reorganizing the shift meals, ensuring occupational safety and health and fulfilling the dual goals under the Government's direction./.

The congress warmly congratulated Nguyen Phu Trong on his re-election as General Secretary of the 13th-tenure Party Central Committee, and those who were elected to the Party Central Committee, the Politburo, the Secretariat, and the Inspection Commission for the 13th tenure.

On behalf of the 13th Party Central Committee, General Secretary and State President Nguyen Phu Trong emphasised that the 13th-tenure Party Central Committee pledges to exert utmost efforts to surmount every difficulty to fulfill duties and be determined to successfully implement the 13th National Party Congress's resolution.

At the closing session, Le Minh Hung, Secretary of the 13th Party Central Committee, Chief of the Party Central Committee's Office, and head of the note-takers' board, read the congress's draft resolution.

The congress then adopted the resolution.

The resolution stated that the congress agreed on the basic assessments of the implementation outcomes of the 12th National Party Congress's resolution, the 1991 Platform on National Construction during the Transitional Period towards Socialism that was supplemented and developed in 2011, the 2011 - 2020 socio-economic development strategy, the 1991 Platform, the 35 years of "Doi moi" (Renewal) policy, along with national development orientations and tasks for the time ahead as noted in the documents submitted by the 12th-tenure Party Central Committee to the 13th congress.

The resolution said the achievements during the 35 years of "Doi moi" and 30 years of implementing the 1991 Platform, especially the 10 years of the Platform supplemented and developed in 2011, have continued to affirm that the path to socialism in Vietnam matches the reality in the country and the development trend of the era, and that the Party's clear-sighted leadership is the leading factor determining the success of Vietnam's revolution.

Amid fast and complicated developments in the global situation, the Party's Platform remains "the flag of ideology, the flag of combat, the flag gathering the great national solidarity" for the goal of rich people, strong nation and an equitable, democratic, and civilised nation.

The resolution underlined the overall goals and concrete targets for 2025, 2030, and 2045; and identified major socio-economic development targets for 2021- 2025, orientations for national development for 2021 - 2030, and the six key tasks for the 13th tenure.

In particular, the congress asserted that the Party will stay persistent in the Marxism - Leninism and Ho Chi Minh's ideology, continually apply and develop them in a creative manner that matches the reality in Vietnam in each period. It will also keep steadfast in the goal of national independence and socialism, and the "Doi moi" policy for the goal of rich people, strong nation and an equitable, democratic, and civilised nation.

The congress also stressed that the Party must enhance Party building and rectification work to a strong and clean Party and political system, push ahead with improving its mettle and leadership and ruling capacity in making and carrying out guidelines and policies in a way that match the reality in Vietnam and the development trend of the era.

The congress also pointed to the need to take timely action to institutionalise, concretise, and effectively implement the Party's guidelines and the State's policies and laws, while addressing shortcomings in the leadership, direction, and organisation of implementation.

The Party and State leader appealed to the entire Party, people, and army, along with compatriots both at home and aboard to make all-out efforts to successfully carry out the 13th Congress's resolution./.

Nine Vietnamese fragrant rice varieties given tariff quotas in EUNine Vietnamese fragrant rice varieties given tariff quotas in EU
Nine Vietnamese fragrant rice varieties will enjoy tariff export quotas to Europe under the Europe-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) agreement.

As part of the agreement, the EU will give Vietnam a quota of 80,000 tonnes of rice with a zero-per-cent tax rate per year, including 30,000 tonnes of milled rice, 20,000 tonnes of unmilled rice and 30,000 tonnes of fragrant rice.

The EU will also fully liberalise broken rice, helping Vietnam export an estimated 100,000 tonnes to the EU annually.

For products made from rice, the EU will bring the tax rate down to 0 percent after three to five years.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) would co-ordinate with localities and exporters to review the list of fragrant rice varieties and amend and supplement where necessary to meet production requirements, said Nguyen Nhu Cuong, director of the ministry's Plant Cultivation Department.

Rice plantations in Mekong Delta provinces account for about 25 percent of the total cultivated area, equivalent to about 1 million hectares. Fragrant rice output is estimated at 5.5 million tonnes.

The amount of fragrant rice exported to the EU was entitled to a preferential tariff quota of 30,000 tonnes, equivalent to 1.2 percent of the rice produced in the region, so the export potential for fragrant rice remained very high, said Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Le Quoc Doanh.

If we complied with EU regulations and exported 30,000 tonnes of fragrant rice and 80,000 tonnes of rice in general with high prices, it would help improve the efficiency of rice production in Vietnam, added Doanh.

The deputy minister noted that after the Government issued Decree 103/2020/ND-CP on the certification of fragrant rice varieties exported to the EU, the ministry quickly issued a decision on certification for rice exporters to this market.

Three units have already submitted their documents to the ministry and their certification was completed within five days. Enterprises can submit registration documents through the public administration service portal of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, or by post. Enterprise certification is completely free.

Businesses with fragrant rice listed in the EVFTA agreement with orders to export fragrant rice needed  to submit their documents to the Plant Cultivation Department quickly to complete procedures for exports to the EU, said Doanh./.

The total retail sales of goods and service revenue in Long An province reached nearly 90,000 billion VND

In 2019, the province's trade and services still maintain stable growth. Goods are abundant and varied in design and type, meeting the needs of consumption. Many convenient stores have been put into operation to serve the shopping needs of the people such as Co.opmart supermarket chain, Bach hoa xanh stores, Vinmart +, SanHàFoodstore, etc. Trade promotion and market expansion are focused on implementation; enterprises and cooperatives actively participate in promoting the province's agricultural products into supermarkets and wholesale markets, especially Ho Chi Minh city businesses at many supply-demand connection programs to ensure the consumption and export of provincial agricultural products.

The end of 2019 and the Lunar New Year are the time when people focus on shopping to welcome Tet. Therefore, the market and commodity prices in the province are forecast to have many fluctuations due to the impact of input material prices; however, supply and demand for goods and services are relatively stable. Smuggling, trade frauds, counterfeit goods, intellectual property and food safety violations are complicated; their tricks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and difficult to control.

The provincial People's Committee requested functional agencies, especially the Department of Industry and Trade to coordinate with local authorities and businesses to proactively monitor and forecast the supply - demand of goods, especially essential goods in management areas to have plans to ensure the supply - demand balance and stabilize the Tet market.

At the same time, the Market Management Department had plans to strengthen inspection and control of goods in the market; strictly handle cases of trading in banned goods, smuggled goods, and goods produced by foreign countries without receipts, resolutely not permit transportation of contraband goods to inland for consumption./.

One commune one product program: Towards building sustainable new-style ruralOne commune one product program: Towards building sustainable new-style rural
One commune one product program (referred to as OCOP program) was born. It is very important to the process of building a new-style rural. Through this program, it will contribute to restructuring the rural economy, increasing added value and aiming for a sustainable commercial enterprise.

Safe vegetables of Muoi Hai Safe Vegetables Cooperative have been selected to develop the OCOP products

Developing key products of each locality

Tan Binh Commune, Tan Tru District, Long An Province is not only famous for historical and cultural relics but also recently for its products made from moringa, a rich and nutritious plant for health. According to the Director of Vuon Nha Minh Company Limited - Pham Ngoc Anh Tuan, currently, on average, the company produces about 500 kilos of moringa powder each month, creating stable jobs for some local people with an income from 6-7 million VND per person per month. In order to meet the needs of the market, he is mobilizing local people to expand the production scale of moringa to create raw material areas for the company. Up to now, Vuon Nha Minh branded products have been gradually standing firmly on the market, present in most supermarkets in major cities in the country.

Mr. Tuan said: "In addition to products such as moringa tea, moringa oil or moringa powder, the company also coordinates a number of food processing companies to create new products such as moringa porridge, moringa instant noodles, and so on to diversify the company's products. Currently, the company completes the procedures to review and recognize OCOP for the products. It is believed that products will be recognized and consumers will increasingly believe in using them in the near future".

Moringa products of Vuon Nha Minh One Member Co., Ltd. are increasingly welcomed by consumers

In March, the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) held a meeting to evaluate and rate OCOP products and submit to the Provincial People's Committee for recognition of 3 3-star products of Thanh Hoa district, including Khap Phuong lime wine, Quang Vinh cajeput flower honey and Quang Vinh longan honey. In recent years, lemons are considered a fast growing crop and bring high economic efficiency to Thanh Hoa district. However, the output problem is the concern of the lemon grower and the local Agriculture sector. Stemming from that situation, the Director of Thuan Binh Agricultural Service Cooperative (Thuan Binh commune, Thanh Hoa district) - Bui Van Khap and his wife - Le Thi Phuong have researched and created the products of lemon wine which are both economical and productive for local lemons.

Mr. Bui Van Khap shared: "The cooperative currently grows 40 hectares of seedless lemons, certified for GlobalGAP standards and has a purchase contract from an enterprise to export to the European market. However, the production process inevitably states that lemons have unqualified designs for export such as lemon skin color irregular, lemons bigger than specifications, etc. For lemons with unqualified designs, Cooperatives sold outside at low prices. Because of this fact, my wife and I think about making lemon wine products to take advantage of products that do not meet export standards. Currently, lemon wine products are consumed through retail agents in the province. In the coming time, I will bring lemon wine to trade fairs and exhibitions inside and outside the province to find customers and build a more sustainable output".

Lemon wine product from Khap Phuong (Thuan Binh - Thanh Hoa)

Head of the Thanh Hoa District DARD - Nguyen Kinh Kha informed that the district chose the Khap Phuong lemon wine, the melaleuca honey and longan honey from Quang Vinh establishment to suport and develop in the OCOP program in order to exploit well the potentials and advantages of the locality. This program will contribute to supporting branding and branding establishments for products. In the coming time, the district will coordinate with provincial departments and agencies to organize training and guide households to grow lemon and beekeeping to ensure food safety, step by step develop lemon areas and expand beekeeping for honey in the district.

The right direction in branding products 

According to the information from the Coordination Office of the provincial new-style rural construction program, the province focuses on production, raising income for people, promoting the OCOP program as an effective solution to develop product groups at the level of commune, district, town and city. At the same time, to step by step bring the trade enterprise movement into depth, efficiency and sustainability.

Muoi Hai Safe Vegetable Cooperative (Hamlet 4, Long Khe Commune, Can Duoc District) is one of the leading units in implementing the OCOP program with safe vegetable products highly appreciated by consumers. With the desire to develop local vegetables and provide customers with quality vegetable products that are safe for daily meals, Muoi Hai Safe Vegetable Cooperative constantly applies scientific and technical advances to manufacturing; at the same time, it supports the long-term safe vegetable consumption, creating motivation for local farmers to increase production and increase income.

Kim Hue's grilled pork sausage and spring rolls products are recognized as 3-star OCOP products

Vice Chairman of People's Committee of Long Khe commune - Nguyen Thi Nhi said: "In the commune, there are over 160 hectares of vegetables of all kinds. This is considered a crop that brings high and stable income for the people in the commune. Muoi Hai Safe Vegetable Cooperative's products have been selected to develop and recognize OCOP, contributing to building brand and promoting the development of the local vegetable region. At the same time, this is also a rebound to contribute to helping the locality to reach the destination of the new-style rural commune in 2021".

The provincial OCOP program has been implemented and performed since 2018. This is an effective and practical program for the people, the core content of the program for building new-style rural and advanced new-style rural contributes to the introduction of typical products with potentials and strengths of the province to the consumer market inside and outside the province. The goal of the program is to develop internal resources and increase the value of agricultural, non-agricultural and advantageous services in each locality. This is very important to Long An when the industry, service and trade of the province are still in the development stage, the consumer market is small, many products of good quality but not known by many people. The output is not ensured, the product value is not high.

Deputy Director of the DARD - Dinh Thi Phuong Khanh said: With the drastic direction of the Party Committee and authorities and the enthusiasm of organizations and individuals to participate, by the end of 2020, the province has 11 products recognized OCOP by the Provincial People's Committee. In which, Vietnam Cordyceps Cultivation and Processing Company Limited (Thanh Loi Commune, Ben Luc District) has 4 4-star products, including cordyceps nutritional powder, cordyceps herbal tea cordyceps, premium cordyceps Oolong tea, dried cordyceps. White Wine Production and Business Joint Stock Company (Phuoc Loi Commune, Ben Luc District) has 5 4-star products, including Go Den wine 31 percent, Go Den wine 41 percent, Go Den green base wine 31 percent, Go Den base wine 31 percent, Go Den gold wine 41 percent. Kim Hue sausage establishment (Tam Vu town, Chau Thanh district) has 2 3-star products, including Kim Hue pork sausage and Kim Hue pork baked rolls.

In 2021, the DARD continues to coordinate with the Provincial Coordination Office for the new-style rural Construction Program to assess, evaluate and classify OCOP program products according to the criteria such as product and community strength, ability marketing, product quality, etc. After evaluating and classifying products, the province continues to build programs and plans to widely advertise and introduce throughout the country, contributing to improving value for local OCOP products.

"The OCOP program is not only meaningful in production development but also helps the locality to solve important problems in poverty reduction, job recruitment, promoting the creativity and intelligence of the people, building linkages of the sustainable community economy. This is considered the right direction in building product brands, enhancing competitiveness in the market, and most importantly, increasing people's income, actively contributing to implementing the program building for new-style rural commune"- Ms. Khanh added./.

Mekong Delta needs more investment in transport infrastructureMekong Delta needs more investment in transport infrastructure
Investment in transport infrastructure in the Mekong Delta is key to boosting exports of local agricultural and seafood products, according to experts.

ĐBSCL cần đầu tư nhiều vào cơ sở hạ tầng giao thông.png

The Mekong Delta has a lot of development potential, especially for agricultural and seafood exports.

However, exports face many difficulties due to scattered transport infrastructure and a lack of links in the transport system, causing high transport costs and affecting competitiveness.

Nguyen Thanh Binh, Chairman of the An Giang Provincial People's Committee, was quoted by the Vietnam News Agency as saying that: "The three bottlenecks of the Mekong Delta region and also the country are in terms of mechanisms, human resources and traffic. Of which, transport is an extremely important factor."

"To develop rice and aquatic production, it is necessary to link the Mekong Delta with other regions through the transport network," Binh said.

According to the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI)'s Can Tho Branch, the Mekong Delta's import and export turnover growth in recent years has slowed.

The exports of the region grew on average 11.8 percent each year in 2010-2018, significantly lower than the national average of 16.4 percent. Provinces depending on export farming products such as An Giang, Ca Mau, Kien Giang, Tra Vinh and Vinh Long have seen decreased export turnover due to limitations in the agricultural processing industry.

Meanwhile, increased export turnover in other localities has mainly depended on the processing industry such as in Long An and Tien Giang, or foreign-invested enterprises in some labour-intensive industries like textiles and footwear.

Nguyen Dinh Tung, General Director of Vina T&T Import and Export Company, said the transport infrastructure in the region had significantly improved recently. This had allowed companies to purchase farming and fruit products directly instead of buying through traders.

However, inter-provincial roads still aren't connected well enough, provincial roads were mostly narrow and the highways connecting the provinces and cities with commercial and logistics service centres in Ho Chi Minh City were just in their first phase of development, he said.

According to Truong Dinh Hoe, General Secretary of the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP), the biggest limitation of the Mekong Delta is a lack of a deep water port to ship export goods, as the region is the largest producer and exporter of seafood, fruit and rice nationwide.

At present, all export goods must be taken to transit ports in HCM City and Ba Ria-Vung Tau province.

Transporting cargo to many transit places has added indirect costs, reducing the competitiveness of Vietnam's seafood products compared to other exporting countries.

Empty containers must be transported from HCM City to the Mekong Delta to pack export goods, and then those goods containers must return to ports in HCM City.

According to Hoe, the Government, ministries and sectors have offered solutions and projects to develop transport infrastructure in the region, but the transport infrastructure network has not kept up with the speed of economic development.

According to Tung, the region has many shallow seaports to be transit places for deep water seaports, but these shallow ports have not operated as well as expected.

Enterprises want seaports in the region to be renovated for more efficient operation. If a deep seaport can be built to receive large ships transporting export cargo, it will significantly shorten transportation time and costs.

The development of the transport infrastructure in the Mekong Delta will not only aid exports but also facilitate goods circulation and transport connections between the region and HCM City to attract more investment to Mekong Delta provinces.

Key transport projects

According to the Ministry of Transport, transport infrastructure in the Mekong Delta in 2021-2025 needs about 57 trillion VND (2.5 billion USD) to invest in key projects.

Meanwhile, many key infrastructure projects in the region have been completed to form a new traffic route from Cao Lanh, Dong Thap province to Kien Giang province, including the Cao Lanh bridge, Vam Cong bridge and roads connecting the centre of the Mekong Delta to other regions.

Chairman of Sovico Group Nguyen Thanh Hung has proposed developing the Can Tho aviation logistics centre project in Binh Thuy district, including facilities for logistics services, freight station, distribution centre and aviation support service centre.

At the same time, Can Tho International Airport needs a cargo warehouse to export agricultural products, seafood products and fruits by air, connecting with other logistics warehouses to gather export goods of the region.

Experts say that to solve the problem of transport infrastructure, the State should focus on projects not only in the Mekong Delta but also in HCM City to help remove bottlenecks in the domestic logistics system.

The VCCI has recommended that specific solutions in regional co-operation, urban planning and infrastructure development should be put in a unified strategy.

At the same time, the State should prioritise consolidating the regional transport system, especially roads on the North-South and East-West routes, including the HCM City - Can Tho - Ca Mau route and the Soc Trang - Can Tho - Chau Doc route.

Minister of Transport Nguyen Van The said by the end of 2021, the Trung Luong - My Thuan expressway would be put into operation and the My Thuan 2 bridge would be completed in 2023. Meanwhile, the My Thuan - Can Tho expressway would be completed in 2022. Thus, the route from HCM City to Can Tho would be a factor to boost the development of the region.

In addition, there are a number of projects, such as the construction of the Ca Mau - Can Tho expressway and the Chau Doc - Long Xuyen - Can Tho expressway. Especially, the project of building the road from Soc Trang to the Tran De Port is under the process of getting approval on investment policy and it is expected to complete the first phase of the project in 2025./.
