“The ministry of Transport feels much sympathized with enterprises’ difficulties. And the congestion at ports in HCMC area is part of the government’s responsibility. Clearly, the unpratical strategies and forecast of development and the unsynchronized infrastructure investment and development has led to the congestion. To solve this, we need synchronized and comprehensive solutions and consensus between enterprises, carriers and shippers:" said the Minister.
