September 12, 2023

HCMC – HCMC authorities have announced plans to clear 90 hectares of coastal mangrove forest to make room for the Can Gio International Transshipment Port project. As outlined in the project proposal, the Can Gio International Transshipment Port requires a total of 571 hectares of land. Of this, 90 hectares of mangrove forest would have to be cleared, including nearly 83 hectares of natural mangrove forest and seven hectares of land without trees. The proposed Can Gio International Transshipment Port in Thanh An Island, Can Gio District, is strategically positioned to accommodate super large container vessels, including those with a capacity of 250,000 tons. HCMC officials anticipate significant investment and job creation through the Can Gio International Transshipment Port.
