Hanoi – Todays’ meeting at the Ministry of Transports and Infrastructures is one of the five scheduled technical institutional visits by the Regione Marche Government delegation working on the development of a preferential customs corridor between Italy and Vietnam to support the development of an international multi-modal transport system whose key hub is the Marche region infrastructure network.
A previous briefing of the project is made to the Italian Ambassador in Hanoi, Ms.Cecilia Piccioni who appreciates the business initiative in line with the Italian Government plan of business internationalization.
The project leader is Regione Marche Government with the coordination of Logistics Platform of Marche region AdriaLp – an integrated logistics hub made up of Ancona sea port Authority, Interporto delle Marche freight village and Ancona International airport. AdriaLp is part of the TEN-T network.
“Marche region Government – adds Councillor Bora in charge of the internationalization of local business - “supports the development of international business projects, such is the Blue Corridor project, providing a competitive logistics tool to serve the overseas business of small and medium-sized companies of our territory. An efficiently-run infrastructure system is an essential requirement to promote export to fast growing international markets – like Vietnam- that are attracted by Italian manufacturing but imports result difficult if not supported by an adequate logistics system. The internationalization policies of regional Government companies strongly need the support of integrated strategies to boost international competitiveness of local business community and, thus, higher employment in Marche region”.
This project – declares Mr. Nicola Paradiso, member of the delegation as the representative of AdriaLP – highlights the potentials of the Marche region logistics infrastructure to drastically reduce the time/cost of container traffic flows from Vietnam to European markets compared to traditional Northern Range routes.
The rationale behind this business proposal is swiftly caught by the Vietnamese Ministry of Transport and by the Vice Minister Mr.Nguyen Van Cong who asks for specific details of the project.
At the end of the meeting Mr.Cong confirms his commitment to promptly submit his feedback on the project wishing for a start-up soon.
