Le Tien Truong, Vinatex Vice Chairman, told reporters how Vietnam is pursuing growth: "Our strategic solution is to closely connect production chains. Regarding financial solutions, the subsidiaries will receive funding from the group’s own budget and also from a loan program for restructuring offered by the Asian Development Bank. Vinatex is the sole economic group receiving this kind of incentive. We will promote investment in internal production chains as a basis for developing new models. Investment models of high efficiency and low cost will be standardized and replicated".
