Seafood exporters request HCMC to delay port fees collection
The Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP) also asked HCMC to make public revenues and expenditures on specific infrastructure.
VASEP has asked the city’s authorities to postpone the collection of fees for using infrastructure facilities and public services at seaport terminals in the city until Covid-19 is brought under control, or at least to the end of this year.

On December 9 last year, the HCMC People’s Council issued a resolution introducing pricing policy for seaport terminal services in the city.
Under the resolution, fees for goods temporarily imported for re-exported, goods deposited in bonded warehouses and transshipment goods would be VND2.2 million (US$95) per 20-feet container, VND4.4 million (US$190) per 40-feet container and VND50,000 (US$2.2) per ton for liquid and bulk cargo.
As for imported and exported goods declared outside the city, the fees would be VND500,000 (US$22) per 20-feet container and VND1 million (US$43) per 40-feet container. For liquid and bulk cargo, authorities would charge VND30,000 (US$1.3) per ton.
Meanwhile, fees would be VND250,000 (US$11), VND500,000 (US$22) and VND15,000 (US$0.65) for goods declared in the city, respectively.
Such fees will be collected from July 1 this year, aiming to raise revenue for the city’s transport infrastructure development around seaports.
VASEP, however, noted as enterprises have borne multiple fees, including BOT toll, environmental protection fees, cargo handling and storage fees, another seaport fee will increase more burden on them, especially when they are losing orders due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
