The representative of Portcoast who attended the conference, Mr. Nguyen Anh Tuan – The Deputy General Director presented a summary of the detailed planning of seaport group No. 5 2020, orientation to 2030 and the premise, the ability and the relating issues to be addressed to develop an international gateway port of Vung Tau - Cai Mep into the port with nature of the international container transshipment. Presentation showed some key features of the detailed planning of port group No.5 to 2020 and orientation to 2030, newly approved by the Ministry of Transportation by Decision 03/8/2011 1745/QD-BGTVT; regarding the ability to develop international gateway port of Vung Tau port  into the port with nature of the international container transshipment, the speech emphasized the necessary and sufficient conditions to bring success to an international transit port, that "sufficient condition" which is the most important assessment is to have the support of at least one or two major carriers. Ending the speech, Mr.Tuan said: " Although the master planning on development of Vietnam's seaport system is determined that Vietnam’s international transshipment port is at Van Phong- Khanh Hoa and this is this is a correct decision by Government because Van Phong has favorable natural conditions while few places on our country has been, moreover  more 12km of entire port can be built in synchronization at first, the landside behind the port is still empty, so it can be planned to develop the economic zone, logistics parks and non-tariff area,…meeting the requirement of international transshipment operation. However, the delay in implementing the investment, especially for the two starting terminal, not finding and linking with "at least one major carrier," to join invest and exploit later caused opportunity to form and develop an international transshipment port in Van Phong reduced a lot. In that situation, the shipping companies, the World’s leading port operators such as APM-Maerks, CMA-CGM, Hutchison Port Holding, APMT, PSA had presented in Cai Mep – Thi Vai to invest and operate the ports, and and bringing the mother ship with the capacity up to 11,000 TEUs in Cai Mep together with establishing direct shipping route from place to USA and Europe by carriers which can be considered a basic premise and most convincing in the development of international gateway port of Vung Tau - Cai Mep port into the port with the nature of  the international container transshipment ".
