New port to transform Vietnam's north into industrial gateway

Lach Huyen doubles region's shipping capacity ahead of anticipated trade boost

The Lach Huyen International Gateway Port is furnished with two container cranes.

HANOI -- Vietnam's coastal city of Haiphong will open a deep-water port this month, taking a step toward becoming a key maritime link in the north and enhancing the country's position in the global supply chain.

Haiphong is already known for its existing port. But the port is located on the River Cam, where the water runs seven meters deep at most, meaning the terminal cannot take large container ships.
