The construction of the Vietnam-Singapore Industrial Park (VSIP) will commence in the central province of Quang Ngai on September 13.

The project, the fifth of its kind in Vietnam, is a joint venture between the province and the Sembcorp Industries, a leading corporation in Singapore.

The first was established in the southern province of Binh Duong in 1996.

Apart from VSIP I and VISP II in Binh Duong, another two are located in the northern province of Bac Ninh and Hai Phong port city.

The 6-billion-USD VSIPs have attracted nearly 490 investors from 25 nations and territories, and generated jobs for over 140,000 labourers nationwide.-VNA
