The construction of a conger eel processing plant began in Hong Dan commune in the southern province of Bac Lieu on March 23.
The plant is a joint project between the Hong Dan Seafood JSC and the Republic of Korea ’s Seil Yangman Company, approved by the provincial People’s Committee in February 2015.
Built across 8,000 square meters with a total cost of over 60 billion VND (2.86 million USD), the plant is designed to process 7 million tonnes of raw fish each day.
It is scheduled to be commissioned in the first quarter of 2016, including workshops, worker accommodations, water supply and drainage and environmental treatment systems.
Speaking at the launching ceremony, RoK representatives pledged to work closely with Vietnamese partners to put the plant into operation on schedule.
The two sides have exchanged experiences in breeding conger in Hong Dan commune since September 2012.
The plant is expected to make conger processed products a local staple for exports and increase farmer incomes in the commune and the vicinity.-VNA
