Market news: Vietnam to form seven marine economic clusters by 2030

Seven maritime economic clusters will be formed by 2030, serving to turn Vietnam into a strong marine country. The information was included in Decision 892/QD-TTg recently signed by Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh, approving a project on the development of marine economic clusters associated with building strong sea-based economic centers by 2030.

The project aims to build seven marine economic clusters in the next ten years in advantageous coastal areas and develop three to four leading maritime economic centers in the Southeast Asian region. The clusters will prioritize services, and products with added value, attract large-scale enterprises and high-tech projects to contribute to green growth and protect the marine ecological environment as well as the marine economy.

These clusters will also contribute to consolidating and strengthening national defense and security in the sea and islands. Notably, developing sea and island tourism is one of the priorities for effectively exploiting the potential and strengths of tourism resources in each region and the entire coast of Vietnam. In particular, the project stresses the importance of the development of the tourism economy with eco-tourism and leisure centers, complexes, and sea and island resorts that meet international standards in clusters in the central region, the southwestern coastal area (Kien Giang – Ca Mau) and other areas with suitable conditions.

Export news: MoIT ready to help Vietnamese companies access Côte d’Ivoire market

The Trade Promotion Agency under the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) stands ready to support and create favorable conditions for companies of Vietnam and Côte d’Ivoire to promote bilateral trade in the future, its director Vu Ba Phu has said. The agency has strived to deploy trade promotion and investment solutions based on the application of information technology, aiming to help Vietnamese companies maintain contact with potential foreign partners and investors to explore collaboration opportunities.

Côte d’Ivoire is Vietnam’s second-largest trading partner and fourth-largest export market in Africa, according to Nguyen Phuc Nam, deputy head of the Asia-Africa Market Department under MoIT. The value of two-way trade amounted to more than 1 billion USD per year between 2017 and 2021. Bilateral trade recorded a strong recovery last year, reaching nearly 1.26 billion USD, up 38.7% from 2020. In particular, Vietnam is currently one of the five largest rice exporters to Côte d’Ivoire, accounting for an average of 30-40% of the African country’s total rice import value.
