Vehicles now can move freely between Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia following a ceremony held at the Hoa Lu (Vietnam) and Trapeang Sre (Cambodia) border gates on September 9. The event marked the realisation of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on facilitating road transport signed between three countries on January 17, 2013, which aims to serve economic development, trade exchange and tourism. The MoU serves as the legal basis to develop road transport among the three countries. It has 11 clauses and three appendixes stipulating contents relating to creating favourable conditions for people and all non-commercial and commercial motorised vehicles to move through border gates. Under the MoU, the quota of commercial vehicles of each country through border gates, excluding fixed passenger transport routes, is 150. Any increases of the quota will be decided upon by the three countries based on economic demand and shared interests. At the ceremony, Vice Chairman of the Binh Phuoc People’s Committee Tran Ngoc Trai said the move will open a new period for socio-economic development and cultural exchanges among the three countries and between Binh Phuoc and neighbouring Lao and Cambodia localities in particular. Notably, National Road No 13 running through Binh Phuoc to Cambodia, Laos and Thailand will become an inter-nation tourism route on the Indochina peninsula, he said. Deputy Minister of Transport Le Dinh Tho emphasised the implementation of the MoU will reduce transport fees and cut waiting times, promoting economic, trade, tourism and transport activities between Vietnam’s Central Highlands, southeast and southwest…...

The plan to develop a fixed route network for inter-provincial transportation with no unscheduled stops and pickup of passengers will increase travel comfort as well as safety, experts and officials say. Participants at a conference held in Da Nang recently also agreed that developing such a network would considerably facilitate management of public transportation, including the licensing of routes and route operators. They said it would ensure greater transparency and equality, as also nudge enterprises offering transportation services towards efficient operations. According to the Transport Strategy and Development Institute under the Ministry of Transport, the country has around 563 bus terminals catering to inter-province passenger transportation on fixed routes. Of these, 475 are authorised, and 88 aren't. The institute also reports that the establishment and management of bus stations in many localities has not been well planned, causing difficulties for residents. There are too many bus terminals in provinces like Lam Dong and Nghe An, it reports. While most of the bus terminals in big cities are overloaded, over 90 have a lot of idle capacity. This has happened because licenses for certain routes have not been issued based on the terminal's capacity, the institute reported. Conference participants made several comments on the transport ministry's draft plan. Phan Xuan Vien, Director of Duc Long Bus Station in Da Nang city, suggested that localities should be able to set up bus terminals serving a specific region. He argued that if all terminals served trans-national routes, finding investors would be difficult. Vo…... [read more]
