SEOUL — June 20, 2019 — Hyosung Chairman Cho Hyun-Joon met with Vietnam’s Deputy Prime Minister Vuong Dinh Hue on June 19 during the latter’s visit to Seoul, and they promised to strengthen their cooperation.

Chairman Cho briefed Deputy Prime Minister Hue on Hyosung’s two plants under construction in Vietnam — a PP plant in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province and a tire cord plant in Quang Nam Province, and asked for the Vietnamese government’s support.
“Vietnam is critical to Hyosung as its global manufacturing base where all of its core products are being produced,” Chairman Cho said, “I hope we will keep up our friendly relationship and strengthen our cooperation.”
“Hyosung is one of the largest investors in Vietnam. I will actively support its projects to build a PP plant in the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau and a tire cord plant in the central province of Quang Nam,” Deputy Prime Minister Hue said.
