Strong support from the prime minister, ministries and provinces/cities to enterprises, as well as effective anti-virus measures in the country have been key factors for Texhong to expand investments in Vietnam, said Tao Hui in a meeting with Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on March 6.
Tao Hui said Texhong’s plants in Vietnam, which currently employs nearly 20,000 locals, have resumed normal operation, reaching 97 – 98% of production capacity, adding the company is determined to accompany the government in realizing the dual target of preventing the epidemic and boosting economic growth set by PM Phuc.
