Speaking at a ceremony marking the Korean-invested company’s 10 th founding anniversary on November 18, Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Tran Ngoc Cang stressed that the project has also helped to reduce poverty and generate jobs for local people.
He expressed his hope that Doosan Vina would continue expanding its production and business, increase the use of domestically-produced materials and equipment, and enhance technology transfer and management.
Cang also called on the company to serve as a bridge connecting local firms and enterprises of the Republic of Korea, and encourage its partners to invest in Quang Ngai, thus promoting the province’s economic growth.
Covering an area of 110 hectares in the Dung Quat Economic Zone, the factory has total investment of 300 million USD. It specialises in manufacturing industrial equipment such as boilers for thermal power plants, cranes for seaports, salt water filtering systems, among others.
Since 2006, the company has provided products worth billions of USD for 197 projects in Vietnam, and shipped its products to 28 countries and territories worldwide.
Doosan Vina General Director Yeon In Jung said, besides boosting production and business, his company has actively taken part in social activities. It has spent over 5.6 million USD on corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities in Quang Ngai.
The firm has also made great efforts in protecting the environment, ensuring labour safety, transferring technology and sharing experience with Vietnamese enterprises in the field of mechanical industry./.
