Mr. Toshio Kazama, Japan Desk's advisor in BTVR province and Deputy General Director of Thanh Binh Phu My Joint Stock Company, said that in recent years, the improvement of BRVT's transport infrastructure has supported the strengthening of supply chains in the Southern Key Economic Zones. From Cai Mep Thi Vai deep seaport (CMTV), Thanh Binh Phu My Company can import raw materials from abroad via container port, liquid cargo port, general port/bulk cargo or LNG/LPG. At that time, factories in industrial parks near the port can produce and process basic materials, downstream petrochemical products such as PP, PE or steel products or even produce electricity from LNG power plants. Since then, raw materials and basic chemicals from these companies will be supplied to light industries and supporting industries in the provinces of Ho Chi Minh City. HCM, Binh Duong, Dong Nai, Long An ... for the manufacture and assembly of the final finished product. After that, these finished products are brought back to CMTV port for export abroad.
