(vasep.com.vn) World Bank funded VND47 billion to upgrade and enlarge De Gi fishing port in Phu Cat district, Binh Dinh province.
It is expected that 3,000 boats, mainly distant fishing boats, will dock the port per year. The quality of logistic services will also be improved in order to create 400-600 jobs for local labours and protect environment and ecosystem of surrounding areas.
This work can bring back high economic benefits for the province. The port of De Gi will provide services to a large number of distant fishing boats and become a great destination for them during typhoons. With this upgraded port, local fishermen can build more distant fishing boats with high capacity to enhance their sea fishing activities, contributing to protection of Vietnam's sovereignty and job creation for 600 local labours and other coastal areas.
The upgraded port will run in line by 2016.
