The Vietnam Glass and Ceramics Corporation (Viglacera) began construction of the Dong Mai Industrial Zone in Quang Yen town, in the northern province of Quang Ninh on November 9.

The industrial zone, covering an area of 160 hectares in Dong Mai ward, will be built at a total cost of 1.2 trillion VND (57.6 million USD).

Dong Mai is the third industrial zone of Quang Ninh province and the second invested by Viglacera in the area, attracting investment in agro-forestry-fisheries, food processing, light industry, high-end consumer products, electrical and electronic products, construction materials and mechanical assembly.

Once operational, the industrial zone is expected to create favourable conditions to attract investment for local industry growth.

Representatives from Viglacera stated that the firm will strive to maintain the progress of the project in order to have the zone fully operational as scheduled.-VNA
