Long An Industry Promotion and Industry Development Consulting Center has worked with Manh Phat business household which Mr. Ut is the owner to implement a VND250 million project to invest in wood carving machines. Of the funds, VND100 millon comes from the province’s industry promotion source.

Mr. Pham Anh Dung, deputy chairman of Phuoc Loi commune People’s Committee in the district, said that the financial assistance aims to help Mr. Ut maintain and develop the traditional career according to the province’s plan on developing rural jobs by 2020.

In addition, the center has assisted Mat Troi Do Energy Company in Duc Hoa district to conduct a technology renewing project applied in solar panel production line with the total capital of VND2.3 billion, including VND200 million from national industry promotion fund.
