Grand Best Textile Vietnam, a Vietnamese supplier to sportswear brand Adidas, will close down from this weekend (30 May) due to a lack of orders.

Ho Chi Minh city's management board of industrial and processing zones has reported that all 797 workers of the Vietnamese plant will be dismissed.

The company says it plans to pay unemployment fees and subsidies for those seeking new work and social insurance by 15 June. 

Grand Best Textile is located at Tan Tao Industrial zone, Ho Chi Minh city, and a subsidiary of Taiwan-based Grand Best Industrial, which also supplies garment products for Adidas.
