The complex will produce ships of up to 70,000 tons. The state-owned Vietnam Shipbuilding Industry Group (Vinashin) has planned to pour $68.7m in the plant. The complex will also house a container production factory, a ship engine manufacturing plant, ports, and a self-reliant thermo-electric power plant. Three other Mekong Delta provinces, Long An, Ca Mau and Kien Giang, have also begun work on ship yards to produce 20,000-100,000-ton vessels. Source: Thanhnien News
