A ground-breaking ceremony for the VMF-WILMAR wheat flour mill was held at the Cai Lan Industrial Park in the northern coastal province of Quang Ninh on July 31.

A total capital investment of 47 million USD, by the Wilmar Group of Singapore and FFM Group of Malaysia , will see 500 tonnes of wheat flour produced per day when the plant goes into production in 2014.

Modern and environmentally friendly technologies will be the means of production which is expected to contribute about 200 billion VND per annum to the provincial budget and create jobs for 200 locals.

This is one of the three projects licensed at the investment promotion conference in Quang Ninh province in February this year.-VNA
