Vietnam Trading Engineering Construction Joint Stock Corp. (Vietracimex) recently handed over 1 million USD to the Japanese Embassy in Vietnam to support victims of the March 11 power earthquake and tsunami.

Vietracimex Chairman and General Director Vo Nhat Thang said Japanese experts have become the company’s friends and colleagues over the past 20 years. Therefore, the company desires to assist Japanese people to overcome difficulties and losses posed by the natural disasters.

On March 24, the Red Cross Association of the central province of Nghe An and the provincial Fatherland Front Committee launched a campaign to raise funds for Japanese victims.

Immediately after the launch, a total of 70 million VND was raised by agencies, units and individuals across the province.

The campaign will run until April 14./.
