Japanese-invested AEONMALL Binh Duong Co., Ltd. on August 4 was licensed to hire a large space at the AEON Binh Duong-Canary in the southern province of Binh Duong serving its long-term operation.

Located at the Vietnam – Singapore Industrial Park 1 in Thuan An township, the AEON Binh Duong-Canary shopping centre is slated to be operational in November, 2014.

With a total investment of 95 million USD, the shopping centre offers 45,000 square metres out of its 75,000 square metres for business activities.

Yukio Konishi, General Director of AEON MALL Vietnam, said the firm’s subsidiary – AEON MALL Binh Duong – will work with its partners immediately make preparations for the mall’s opening.

He added that the centre will provide quality products and services as well as create jobs for thousands of locals.
