Bangladesh Port of Mongla

Port Overview:

Mongla is the second largest port of the country.
Even if, in theory, there should be a ratio of 60 – 40 % between Chittagong and Mongla, the reality os far from that with Chittagong currently totalizing 92% of the country’s international trade.
Mongla port development was more or less stopped during years and even its operations were significantly reduced. Obvious operational problems were noticed in the past; especially regarding bulk cargo, with significant leakages … Labour problems (mainly with the stevedores) also occurred. It seems that the second problem could be solved; meanwhile the first one still needs to be fully addressed.
Nevertheless, in connection with the sub-regional discussions ongoing with the Indian, Nepalese and Bhutanese governments aiming at developing regional operational corridors, it seems that the current government has decided to start again the development of the Mongla port. A 3-phased development plan has been drafted and is about to be funded by the national authorities; and senior management was appointed in this regard.
