The Lach Huyen non-tariff, logistics, and industrial zone project is identified as a key project in 2023 according to Haiphong People's Committee, forming a fundamental part of the city's logistics development journey.
Nguyen Van Tung, Chairman of Haiphong People's Committee said, “With the advantage of being part of the Lach Huyen international deepwater port, which can receive cargo ships of up to 150,000DWT from all over the world, and as a non-tariff zone, the Lach Huyen tariff-free, logistics, and industrial zone project has many opportunities to draw investment while developing into a production centre and a regional and global logistics hub.”

The construction of the Lach Huyen non-tariff, logistics, and industrial zone aims to contribute to perfecting the functions of the Cat Hai area, creating synchronisation and strengthening the investment attraction, trade promotion, and socioeconomic development of Haiphong city and the northern region.
Echoing the vision of Haiphong city, the investor representative said, “Xuan Cau-Lach Huyen Investment JSC has set forth the target of turning the site into a production hub and a logistics and transshipment centre, with the aim of developing Lach Huyen deepwater port into an international transshipment facility.”
The shifting trade flows bring prosperity hallmark
The formation of Lach Huyen non-tariff, logistics, and industrial zone will complete the infrastructure and functional subdivisions of Lach Huyen international deepwater port area in particular and of Haiphong in general.
The project is expected to create a new hub for goods transshipment, affecting the shift of the world's inherent trade flows and forming the basis to attract overseas funding to Haiphong and the northern region, thereby driving development in many economic and social respects.
