At the 3rd meeting session at the beginning of 2022 of the XV National Assembly, investment policy of two important transport infrastructure projects of the Southeastern region- the Ring Road 3 - HCMC and the Bien Hoa - Vung Tau Expressway, were approved by the National Assembly. These are two transport infrastructure projects that are expected to create a breakthrough in the development of the whole Southeastern region and to contribute to he development momentum of the "super" Long Thanh Airport and the "super" Cai Mep - Thi Vai Seaport in the future.
In fact, investment and construction of a synchronous transport infrastructure system is an urgent requirement to remove the "bottlenecks", creating breakthroughs for the Southeastern region in general as well as bring full potential of the two new development centers of the region- Long Thanh Airport and Cai Mep - Thi Vai seaport- into play.
To realize the goal of turning Long Thanh Airport and Cai Mep - Thi Vai Port Cluster into a driving force for development of the entire Southeastern economic region, the fact of investing in a synchronous transport infrastructure system and having smooth and effective connection between the "super" airport and "super" seaport is a key factor that is highly expected.
