Hanoi (VNA) - The Vietnam National Coal and Mineral Industries Group (Vinacomin) anticipates a turnover of 110 trillion VND (4.8 billion USD) this year, along with an average salary of 9.1 million VND (404 USD) per worker.

Vinacomin said, during a conference to launch business plans for 2016, held recently in the Quang Ninh province, that it planned to mine 39.87 million tonnes of coal, while consuming 38 million tones.

Its turnover in 2015 reached 105.5 trillion VND (4.68 billion USD), posting a three percent year-on-year rise. Of which, turnover from coal production was 53.6 trillion VND (2.38 billion USD) with estimated profits of 500 billion VND (22.2 million USD).

The company contributed VND12.5 trillion to the State budget, posting 8 percent higher tax revenues than in 2014.

The company employed 124,400 labourers last year, at an average salary of 8.6 million VND per month, an increase of 2.5 percent from the previous year.
