The Prime Minister has approved a plan to build the Lien Chieu Port in Da Nang at a cost of over VND3.4 trillion ($147 million).

Most of the funds, around 87 percent will be sourced from the state budget.

With several features including breakwaters and auxiliary facilities, the port will be able to accommodate container ships weighing 6,000-8,000 TEUs. Work on the port is expected to be completed in 2025.

It is expected to relieve the pressure on the overloaded Tien Sa Port in Da Nang, enhance regional connection and contribute to socioeconomic development of the city in particular and the central region in general.

The government has asked the Da Nang People’s Committee to evaluate the environmental impact of the project as also cooperate with the Ministry of Transport to upgrade the transport network connecting with the Lien Chieu Port.

Da Nang’s only cargo port to date, Tien Sa, handles 8.6 million tons of cargo per year. This is expected to exceed the designed capacity and reach 12 million tons in 2023.
