An apparel-making plant, whose construction began in the Mekong Delta province of Hau Giang on June 17, is expected to create 4,000 jobs for locals once it becomes operational.

Nha Be, a major player of the Vietnamese textile and garment industry and the plant’s owner, revealed the news, adding that this is one of the company’s key projects to enhance its competitiveness.

The plant, built at cost of more than 300 billion VND (13.8 million USD), covers six hectares in Vi Thanh City.

It is designed to turn out 30 million high-quality garments annually catering to domestic and international markets, particularly the US and European countries, with estimated revenue of over 120 million USD each year.

The plant will go into operation in September.-VNA
