The main objectives of the Project were to improve (i) the capacity of the existing facilities in Saigon Port by rehabilitating and modernizing them; (ii) the present port operations by rationalizing and streamlining the activities; and (iii) the performance of Saigon Port by introducing a management information system (MIS). Advisory technical assistance (TA), which accompanied the Project, assisted in strengthening the institutional capacity of the Saigon Port Authority (SPA), the Executing Agency (EA) for the Project. The TA aimed to design the MIS, which was procured under the Project.
