To accommodate this and to address the needs of Chittagong Port Authority, the scope of works and implementation timeline have been adjusted.

In order to fully address the needs of the client and achieve the expected outcomes of the TA by preparing the long-term development plan for Chittagong Port, the TA completion period was extended to 31 December 2015.
