The Company developed the “Long Duc Industrial Park” jointly with Sojitz Corporation and Kobelco Eco-Solutions Co., Ltd. in Vietnam in 2011, and then proceeded to attract Japanese companies and obtain orders to build their factories there. Since then, the Company has been working on developing logistics facilities elsewhere in Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia.
Against this backdrop, the Company has decided to start work on “D Project Malaysia I” to support the diversifying logistics facility needs in Malaysia.
