The construction of a bike and automobile spare parts manufacturing plant was kick-started in the northern province of Vinh Phuc on March 19.

The 5-million-USD project, the second of its kind funded by Japanese investors, is being built at Ba Thien 2 industrial park in Binh Xuyen district with a modern and environmentally friendly assembly line.

It is expected to be put into operation in August and generate jobs for hundreds of workers.

According to Director of the Vietnam-based Suzukaku Co.,Ltd Suzuki Kakunori, his company will be responsible for constructing new plants in Vietnam and help the country enhance its competiveness against those facilities built in Japan and the US, contributing to the company’s development.

Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Ha Hoa Binh said his locality will create the optimal conditions for Suzukaku to promptly deal with difficulties during the process of carrying out the project.

He expressed his hope that the company will harness all its resources to ensure the progress and quality of the plant.

Japan is running 21 investment projects in Vinh Phuc province which is appealing for more money into expanding and promoting the bike, automobile and support industry.-VNA
