QUANG NAM (VNS) — The Vietnam Textile Group (Vinatex) broke ground on a garment and fibre weaving and dyeing complex in Que Son District in the central province of Quang Nam on Wednesday.
The 10-hectare complex will cost more than VND1.2 trillion (US$55.8 million) and consist of a fibre plant with an annual capacity of 6,500 tonnes, a 6,000-tonne dyeing plant, a garment plant and waste water treatment facilities with a capacity of 5,000 cubic metres per day.
The intensive investment project in the central region is being undertaken in preparation for the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP). It will help boost the textile and garment industry in Quang Nam, Da Nang and other neighbouring coastal, central provinces. Once operations commence in the third quarter of 2017, the complex will create jobs for 2,000 local workers. — VNS
