In Binh Duong Province near Ho Chi Minh City, 92.5 percent of foreign companies that closed have resumed operations, people’s committee Chairman Le Thanh Cung said May 20.

He was speaking at a meeting between provincial authorities and the bosses of 90 companies at the Vietnam Singapore Industrial Parks 1 and 2 affected by violence during the anti-China riots.

Cung and Vo Thanh Duc, head of the province police, apologized to the companies for their losses.

Cung promised that authorities would take action against extremists for breaking the law and report to the Government about the losses suffered by firms to get them assistance.

The province has itself taken measures to help the companies resume operations and reduce losses.
