In this photo taken Oct. 17, 2011, a boat passes by the abandoned Van Phong port in Khanh Hoa provinvce in southern Vietnam. All that remains of a plan by Vietnam to build a major deep water port is 114 exposed pilings trailing into the South China Sea and a barge full of rusty machinery. Foreign investors stayed away from the $3.6 billion project and the indebted state-owned company overseeing it bungled the job. Earlier this month, Sept., 2012, the government accused the company of "financial incompetence" and suspended the project. The prospects for ever reviving it are dim.
