HCMC – Hoa Phat Group JSC (HPG) has proposed developing infrastructure for the Bai Goc seaport and Hoa Tam industrial park in Dong Hoa Town in Phu Yen Province, with a total cost of some VND120 trillion.
The projects will be executed within 36 months, a representative of the leading Vietnamese steelmaker told a recent meeting with the leader of the Phu Yen government, the local media reported.
When in place, the two projects will annually contribute some VND6 trillion to the local budget and create jobs for 12,000 workers, according to HPG.
Such large-scale projects will act as a stimulus for the province’s socio-economic growth, said the Phu Yen economic zone management board.
Hoa Phat had earlier proposed investing in seaport, deepwater port and steel plant projects in Quang Tri Province and developing a modern urban project in Thua Thien Hue and an aluminum facility in Dak Nong, the local media reported.
Starting the new week in a bearish market, HPG plunged to its floor price today, June 20.
