HÀ NỘI — Environmental protection must be the top priority of businesses, Deputy Prime Minister Trịnh Đình Dũng said at a reception yesterday for General Director of Doosan Vina in Việt Nam Jung Yeon-in.
He said Việt Nam welcomes and creates optimal conditions for foreign firms to do business in the country. However, he noted that overseas firms need to pay attention to protecting the environment and fully implementing commitments and regulations in the field.
The Deputy PM also urged foreign companies to ensure labour safety, take good care of workers, carry out humanitarian and charity programmes, and contribute to Việt Nam’s social welfare policies.
He hailed Doosan Vina’s investment in Việt Nam, which helps increase the rate of locally-produced components and fuel the development of some industrial sectors, including electricity.
Director General Jung Yeon-in reiterated his group’s motto of observing environmental commitments, standards and regulations in Việt Nam.
It also has strict criteria on labour safety and care for workers, he added.
He expressed his wish to cooperate with Vietnamese partners to develop mechanical engineering and increase the responsibility of the business community for social affairs and environmental protection.
At a meeting with President and CEO of SCG Group Roongrote Rangsiyopash on the same day, the Deputy PM said Việt Nam will create the best conditions for the Thai enterprise to carry out investment projects in the country as scheduled.
