Financed by INDEVCO Joint Stock Company, the plant provides 80 million metres of glass annually to meeting the increasing demand of domestic and international markets.
The plant, which can utilize the province’s available source of limestone materials, is expected to create 1,000 local jobs.
Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Dinh Van Dien said he appreciates the efforts by local authorities and the investor to speed up the factory’s construction.
At the opening ceremony, the chairman said Ninh Binh has always created favourable conditions for businesses and investors in the locality.
The province is now home to 6,000 enterprises and strives to raise the figure to over 10,000 by 2020.
