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.

Tao Hui requested the government and Quang Ninh province to speed up clearance process for goods transportation and allowing Texhong’s experts and staffs to enter Vietnam.

The company is committed to strictly following regulations of the local authority regarding Covid-19 prevention, Tao Hui stressed.

At the meeting, Phuc said Texhong is an example of Chinese companies doing business in Vietnam, contributing significantly to Vietnam – China comprehensive partnership.

Texhong has been a major supplier of yarn for Vietnam’s textile industry, accounting for 43% of total input materials.

Phuc added Vietnam has been in control of the epidemic and remains firm on materializing the dual target.

On this occasion, Phuc sent greetings to workers at over 2,800 Chinese projects in Vietnam and expressed hope they would have similar success to Texhong.
