Update: March, 17/2012 - 08:46

LAOS — A ceremony was held in the Lao province of Bolikhamxay earlier this week to start construction on a Vietnamese-invested factory set to manufacture starch from cassava.

The project, run by the Thanh Hoa General Materials Company, will add to the celebrations of the Viet Nam – Laos Solidarity Year in 2012, the provincial economy and local standards of living, said Vietnamese Ambassador to Laos Ta Minh Chau.

Built on a 26.78-ha site, the factory has the capacity of producing 100 tonnes of starch per day. Once completed and in operation, in 18 months, it will employ over 100 local people.-VNS
