Nhan Dan Online – Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on February 20 kicked off construction for a VND1.4 trillion (US$65.8 million) wood production line in Quan Ngang Industrial Zone, Quang Tri province’s Gio Linh district.

The EU-standard line, MDF VRG-Quang Tri Wood Factory’s second construction, has a designed annual capacity of 120,000 m3 of medium-density fibreboard (MDF). It is scheduled to be completed by the second quarter of 2015.

Once put into operation, the line is expected to triple the plant’s growth rate, earning VND1.3 trillion (US$61 million) in revenue per year and generating more than 2,000 jobs for local workers.

Speaking at the ceremony, Deputy PM Phuc spoke highly of the efforts by the province, the Vietnam Rubber Group and the factory owners in building the line.

The construction of the plant has created jobs for local workers, given more work to tree planters and generated additional revenue for the province’s budget, Phuc said.

He urged the Vietnam Rubber Group and Quang Tri province to create favourable conditions for the construction of the plant’s lines and to ensure quality of the work, labour safety and environmental protection in the industrial zone.
