Anh Tú -

According to the Vietnam Maritime Administration (VINAMARINE), the total volume of goods passing through Vietnam’s seaports in the first half of 2022 reached 371.64 million tons, an increase of just 2 per cent year-on-year. The slow growth is due to many factors, such as higher freight rates, China’s “Zero Covid” policy, and rising inflation amid gloomy global growth.
