On May 27 will be a cold chain workgroup luncheon at D.House Restaurant, also in District 1. The participants will exchange experiences in building and operating cold stores in Viet Nam, and discuss the prospect of the cold storage business in the future when the nation’s seaport system will change.

The next day’s event will be a tour to Saigon New Port in the morning and a workgroup luncheon, where Mr. Roy Cummins, CEO of the Saigon Premier Container Terminal, will serve as the speaker. Participants will have a chance to get an overview of marine transportation in southern Viet Nam and visit the modern container port of Cat Lai.

During the luncheon, Mr. Cummins will speak about the challenges of developing a new port in HCMC and trends in the shipping industry.
