Ca Mau wants to build $3.5 billion seaport

The southernmost province of Ca Mau is seeking investment to develop a US$3.5 billion seaport complex, which can receive vessels of up to 250,000 tonnes capacity, on Hon Khoai Island.

At a working session with Minister of Transport Truong Quang Nghia on Wednesday, Ca Mau Province proposed that the Hon Khoai Seaport should be considered one of the major national projects requiring investment.

Nguyen Tien Hai, chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, proposed that the transport ministry adjust planning and scale of the H?n Khoai Seaport to enable it to welcome vessels with capacity of up to 250,000 tonnes.

Under the current approved plans, the Hon Khoai Seaport is capable of receiving vessels from 100,000 tonnes to 160,000 tonnes.

Minister Truong Quang Ngh?a said calling for investment to develop the Hon Khoai Seaport from the State budget was not feasible, given the limited budget of the Government.

Nghia said the province needed to carefully study the feasibility of the project to call for investment, adding that the ministry would support the province in implementing this project.

The Hon Khoai Seaport project has been calling for investment since July 2016.

The province said Hon Khoai Seaport has several advantages. It will be a large deep-water seaport, which can attract a significant shipment volume and boost the region’s economic growth.

The seaport is expected to serve the Nam Can Economic Zone and the southern region with the transport of a number of goods, from coal, rice, agricultural and fisheries products, to petrol, oil and liquefied gas.

Notably, Hon Khoai will be a “green” seaport with a preserved ecosystem.

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
