Improving Chittagong port

I am a merchant navy officer served at sea for long 22 years, out of which more then 12 years as Captain in various ocean going ships (including container ships). At present, I am working at Chittagong with a Container Feeder Vessels operating company of Singapore. Apart from long time acquaintance with Chittagong port (since 1979) I had opportunity to visit numerous advanced and underdeveloped ports in almost all continents.

Normally, development of any port is heavy investment oriented affair. But, present congested situation of Chittagong port can be improved by taking certain measures and co-ordinated actions, which may not be too much expensive and time-consuming.
