It came to Việt Nam in 1992 as a trading business and has gradually diversified into cement, building materials, petrochemicals, and packaging.
It recently bought Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (Petro Vietnam)’s 29 per cent stake in Long Sơn Petrochemicals, in which it holds the remaining 71 per cent, and is scheduled to sign a $3.2 billion loan deal with local and international financial institutions in August.
