|Construction of the DOFICO industrial-agricultural complex began in southern province of Dong Nai on September 19|
The complex will cover more than 2,000 hectares in Xuan Loc District, the southern province of Dong Nai.
The project will be built with a self-contained production chain meeting international standards and apply cutting-edge technologies that will contribute to raising agricultural products’ quality and value.
The complex is aimed to attract investors in fields such as agricultural products, foods, and production of agricultural materials.

The complex will have five areas for husbandry, cultivation, food processing, hi-tech agriculture and trading.
In the first phase, the complex is expected to be put into operation in 2013 at a cost of VND1.41 trillion.
The second phase is scheduled to start in 2014.
On this occasion, DOFICO gave VND3.55 billion to local schools in Xuan Loc and Thong Nhat districts.
