Hanoi (VNA) - The Republic of Korea (RoK)’s LG Innotech Co. Ltd under the LG Group will invest 550 million USD into a project in the northern city of Hai Phong.

The RoK firm will build a 10-hectare factory producing module cameras at the Trang Due Industrial Zone, according to the Hai Phong Industrial Zone Management Board.

The project is the third invested by LG in the city, bringing the group’s total investment in Hai Phong to about 3.35 billion USD.

The first one is a 1.5 billion USD facility producing electronic home appliances, which was put into operation in March 2015, and the second one, also worth 1.5 billion USD, was licensed in early April this year to make OLED displays. Both of them are in Trang Due IZ.
