Thanks to the favorable conditions such as competitive labor cost, strong development of oil and gas activities, skillful labor force and favorable geographical position, Vietnam’s maritime supporting industry has developed to a significant level.
A number of Norwegian manufacturers have set up their production facilities in Vietnam, such as VARD Vung tau, Vinomarine Co., Steinsvik Vietnam, Karmsund Maritime Vietnam, Jotun Paints (Vietnam) etc.
There is a need to develop the fishing fleet and increase efficiency of the coastal shipping, which creates some business opportunities for Norwegian companies:
1. Fishing vessels design and building (composite and steel)
2. Supplying marine equipment:
- On-board preservation (cooling, blast-freezing, slurry ice, etc.)
- Engine, propulsion
- Fish finding equipment
- Deck equipment
