HA TINH (VNS)— Construction of a general hospital for workers at Vung Ang economic zone in the central province of Ha Tinh kicked off last Friday.
The hospital will cover nearly 11,000 sq.m and is being built under the BOO (Build-Own-Operate) model between Minh Khang Trade Co. Ltd of Viet Nam and Hung Nghiep Formosa Ha Tinh Steel Company of Taiwan.
