Vietnam is one of the most notable emerging markets with abundant growth potential among developing countries in Southeast Asia. In recent years, Vietnam has been promoting expansion projects of large-scale transportation infrastructure, including roads, railroads, and airports, such as the “North-South Expressway”, “North-South Highway”, and “Long Thanh International Airport”.

KOTI has been conducting various transportation and logistics projects with Vietnam. We requested the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport(MOLIT) to help us provide a cooperation center that serves as a hub for transportation infrastructure with Vietnam. Accordingly, in March 2018, the Korea-Vietnam Transportation Infrastructure Cooperation Center(VKTrans) has established in Hanoi, Vietnam. For the past three years, VKTrans has played a key role as a transportation infrastructure platform that spreads information and supports the policy. We have supported the government policies in Vietnam such as PPP and the road act revision, promoted various international seminars for private companies, and promoted Knowledge Sharing and Capacity Building Programs to share our experiences.

VKTrans was established to promote cooperation between Korea and Vietnam. It is meant to serve as an online knowledge-sharing platform that can be easily accessed by government policy officers, experts, and the private sector. VKTrans is expected to play a major role as a network platform that helps cooperation between Vietnam and Korea, by helping Vietnam's transportation infrastructure development, providing rapid and systematic support to the government and private sectors aiming to make a foray into Vietnam.

Thank you.
