VIETNAM: Garment Chiefs Plan 10 New Factories
Officials from the Vietnam National Garment and Textile Corporation (Vinatex) on Monday unveiled ambitious plans for 10 new garment and textile industrial complexes across the country.
Clothing chiefs see the new complexes, which stretch from the northern Hung Yen province to the southern provinces of Dong Nai, Binh Duong and Long An, as vital if Vietnam is to become a leading player in the international marketplace.
Vinatex bosses are now seeking government backing for their industry blueprint and are calling for the complexes to be given favourable treatment like that given to industrial zones as well as free land, roads and other infrastructure.
