VGP - Japan’s Binh Dinh Evertrust firm commenced the construction of a plant, specialising in seafood processing and preserving, at the Nhon Hoi Economic Zone in Quy Nhon city, Binh Dinh province on October 10.

Permanent Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Phan Cao Thang said the project will contribute to improving the capacity of seafood processing, which is a strength of Binh Dinh, as well as diversifying tourist services and generating more jobs.

The plant, combined with a Japanese cultural tourism site, will be built on a total area of 5ha with a total investment of US$8 million.

The plant will have a capacity of processing and preserving 2,000 tons of seafood products per year which meet international standards for exporting to Japan, the U.S. and Europe

The first stage of the project is scheduled to be put into operation by mid-2019.

The plant in Binh Dinh is the second of its kind opened by Mai Tin in Viet Nam following the first one in Cam Ranh city, Khanh Hoa province.

General Director of Evertrust Kosaburo Kimura expressed his wish to turn the plant into a source of tuna for both domestic and foreign supplies so that more consumers can access Vietnamese tuna.
