Besides high appreciation of the reforms and facilitation of Hai Phong Customs, many businesses proposed macro issues with Hai Phong City, which focused on developing the city as a regional and world-class logistics center.

Hai Phong is one of the few localities in the country that has all types of transport (sea, air, land, rail and inland waterways), but the development is still limited and sees a lack of connection.

Mr. Tran Tien Dung, Chairman of Hai Phong Logistics Association, said that to promote the potential and advantages of logistics, it is necessary to create synergy to develop the Hai Phong port area into an international gateway port under the plan and goals set by leaders.

One of the important matters is that the city’s government should support and provide a stronger incentive mechanism for local logistics enterprises and port operators to join hands to build a world-class logistics center with many types of transport to boost the potential and advantages of the city.

Mr. Dinh Huu Thanh, Chairman and General Director of Con Ong Logistics Joint Stock Company, said that the company is a leading logistics company in Vietnam with offices in many localities and in some countries in the world, the quantity of goods processed by the company is valued at hundreds of millions of USD/year.

Mr. Thanh proposed to build an air logistics center to develop the advantages of Cat Bi International Airport, thereby facilitating and reducing costs for businesses in import and export activities.

“To do this, the city’s government should offer effective mechanisms to encourage and attract domestic and international airlines to operate at Cat Bi Airport. Build an off-airport cargo terminal like at Noi Bai Airport to strengthen the connection between the two airports to improve the operational efficiency and cargo exploitation of Cat Bi Airport," Mr. Thanh said.

Mr. Bui Minh Hung, General Director of Vietnam Container Shipping Joint Stock Company (VICONSHIP) suggested that the city needs to build more expressways in the area to connect with the national highway network and port areas, especially Dinh Vu and Lach Huyen port areas; expand inland waterway transport capacity; strengthen the connection of Cat Bi airport. It is necessary to strengthen the dredging of channels and harbors to ensure conditions for vessel exploitation.

The business representatives also suggested Hai Phong Customs and Hai Phong City promote digital transformation to better serve production, business, import and export activities.

At the conference, Deputy Director of Hai Phong Customs Department Tran Manh Hung directly answered the recommendations of the business community.
