The group is targeting about 500 hectares of land (1,235 acres) near Ha Noi for the investment which will use the company's experience deployed at a similar project in Kaohsiung, southern Taiwan, the report said.
The Kaohsing-based group, whose core business is steel making, also runs a university, a high school and an elementary school and manages property development businesses.
Vietnamese authorities hold a positive attitude towards the planned investment, the report said.
E-United was not immediately available for comment on the report.
The group is currently spending US$1.65 billion on a steel complex in Danang, central Viet Nam, scheduled for completion in three years.
