On September 21, 2023, the Vietnam Seaports Association (VPA) successfully organized its annual conference in collaboration with the hosting unit, Dong Nai Port, at the Pullman Hotel in Vung Tau City.
The conference was attended by Mr. Le Do Muoi, the Director-General of the Vietnam Maritime Administration; Mr. Bui Thien Thu, the Director-General of the Inland Waterways Administration of Vietnam; Mr. Nguyen Cao Luc, former Deputy Chief of the Government Office; leaders from Ba Ria Vung Tau Province, Dong Nai Province, nearly 500 delegates from 81 member ports, and representatives from businesses providing equipment for the Port Operations sector.
Huynh Thy had the honor of being the main sponsor for the Vietnam Seaports Association’s (VPA) annual conference in 2023. This marked the fourth consecutive year that Huynh Thy Group had collaborated with VPA in organizing this event. This underlined Huynh Thy’s commitment to steadfastly support the development of the maritime port industry in Vietnam.
At VPA 2023, Huynh Thy and their partner, Globalsim, introduced the Huynh Thy Crane Simulation Training Center (HSTC) and the GlobalSim Full-Mission Simulation Training System from the United States.
About the VPA Conference
The Vietnam Seaports Association (VPA) was established in 1994, and after more than 29 years of existence, it boasts 81 members, including ports located in the northern, central, and southern regions of Vietnam. Major ports in Vietnam are among the association’s members. Currently, the association has two executive members holding the positions of President and General Secretary of the ASEAN Ports Association (APA) for the 2023-2024 term.
In 2023, VPA focused particularly on adjusting port service prices, reducing subsidies for transportation, and improving port infrastructure. Additionally, they aimed to optimize port management and operations to ensure efficiency and competitiveness in the future. The support from Huynh Thy Group in providing advanced simulation training solutions was a significant step toward enhancing safety and quality in the field of container handling and operations in Vietnam.
Huynh Thy and the Mission to Elevate the Standards of Seaport Workforce Training
Another noteworthy point from this conference is that Huynh Thy Group presented the Huynh Thy Simulation Training Center (or HSTC) and the Full-Mission simulation training system by GlobalSim.
