Synchronous transportation system and the development of Quang Nam
(QNO) - Quang Nam has considerably developed since it was liberated in 1975 thanks to its synchronous transportation system, including the road, airport and seaport.
The eastern region of Quang Nam, which used to be a barren white sand area, now becomes an economic driving force of Quang Nam province with several industrial parks and clusters, economic zones, airport, seaports, resorts and amusement parks connected by the 70km coastal road named Vo Chi Cong.
The synchronous transportation system is considered a solution for the economic development in Quang Nam.
The province will keep on upgrading arteries, such as East-West Road, to shorten the distance between the plain and the mountainous regions, and at the same time, to clear the trading routes from Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia to Vietnam, to facilitate import and export activities.
The section of National Highway 14E which goes through Quang Nam province is being upgraded, connecting the Eastern and Western regions of the province.
It will shorten the shipping time, contributing to trading exchange between provinces in Central Highlands, Southern Laos, North-eastern Cambodia, Thailand and Quang Nam and South-Central Vietnam.
Besides National Highway 14E, several roads are widened or built, including the road from the Nam Giang International Border Gate Economic Zone to Chu Lai seaport.
Along with upgrading the road system, the system of deep-water ports and airport in Chu Lai are also invested.
According to the provincial plan, a new channel will be built to receive 50-thousand-ton vessels.
A system of warehouses and related services will concurrently be prepared in order to develop Quang Nam seaports into a new export gateway in Central Vietnam.
The development of seaport system is synchronously done with that of Chu Lai airport and of the East-West economic corridor 2 connecting Quang Nam with Laos, Thailand, and Myanmar.
The provincial transportation system after being synchronized will facilitate the local socio-economic development, especially in industry and travel, via the East-West corridors.
