Canada’s Methanex seen pouring $1bn into Vietnam plant

Local reports earlier said the firm was ready to invest $1 billion in a methanol plant in southern Vietnam is premature while the state-run Vietnam Investment Review weekly quoted the Ministry of Planning and Investment on Monday as saying Methanex had chosen the site for the plant in the southern oil and gas hub province of Ba Ria Vung Tau.

"We are just at the very early stages," said Jason Chesko, director of investor relations.
