Can Gio international transshipment port located nearby the buffer zones of the Can Gio Biosphere Reserve, will not penetrate the boundary of the biosphere, said Mr. Pham Anh Tuan, general director of Portcoast Consultant Corporation (Portcoast).
Mr. Phan Van Mai, Chairman of the HCMC People's Committee, emphasized that Resolution No.12 on Can Gio District's development direction until 2030 determines that tourism development will become a spearhead economic sector.
Despite waiting for the official policy from the Ministry of Planning and Investment, the investment in the construction of an international transshipment port worth US$6 billion in Can Gio District in Ho Chi Minh City is said to be confirmed.

The project of an international transshipment port in Ho Chi Minh City’s Can Gio outlying district is attracting the attention of the public. Currently, the southern metropolis is preparing to set up a project and evaluating this super project.
As Can Gio District asked for permission to build a waste treatment plant in Thanh An Island Commune, Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee Phan Van Mai suggested the district use the investment budget or call for socialization and promptly deploy the project as soon as it receives investment capital. Along with that, the district should spare the land fund to develop clean electricity, such as solar and wind power.
A delegation of HCMC officials led by Vice Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Nguyen Ho Hai took a survey of building grassroots political systems, Party building organization, preparation for the academic year 2022-202, and offered gifts to families under preferential treatment policy in Thanh An Island Commune in Can Gio District on August 20.
Both the Vietnam Maritime Corporation (VIMC) and the Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), the world’s largest container shipping firm, have shown their resolve to soon start an international transit terminal project in Can Gio district of Ho Chi Minh City.
The news of Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) cooperating with Vietnam National Shipping Lines (VNSL) to build a ‘mega-port’ at Cai Mep River has received contradictory opinions. While this construction might negatively affect Can Gio biosphere reserve, the usefulness of this mega-port in promoting the brand name of Saigon Seaport and boosting overall development of maritime economics cannot be denied.
