HCMC – The government of HCMC has executed a resolution on introducing levels of fees for using infrastructure facilities and public services at seaport terminals in the city, reported Phap Luat Online.

The municipal government asked the relevant agencies to implement the resolution effectively within their authority.

Earlier, the HCMC People’s Council passed a plan of the HCMC People’s Committee on collecting infrastructure fees at seaports, starting from July 1 this year.

According to the plan, the lowest fee is VND15,000 per ton and the highest is VND4.4 million for a 40-foot container.

Revenue from the seaport infrastructure fees will be contributed to the State budget. Fee collectors will take a maximum 1.5% of the total revenue.

The seaport fee collection is aimed at creating a budget to develop the road system near seaports, to ease traffic congestion and to enhance the goods transport capacity, contributing to the city’s development.
