POSCO plans $4.5 bln-steel mill in Vietnam
POSCO, the world's third-largest steel maker, is seeking approval from the Vietnamese government to build a $4.5 billion steel mill with a local partner, Reuters quoted the state media as saying on August 13.

The Dau Tu (Investment) newspaper quoted a POSCO proposal to the Vietnamese government as saying it would form a venture with dominant state shipbuilder Vinashin in which Vinashin will hold a 30% stake in the mill.

The hot-rolled steel mill, located in Van Phong Bay in the south central coastal province of Khanh Hoa, adjacent to a key transhipment port project, will be completed by 2010, the report said.

The group has already started construction of a $1.13 billion cold-rolled steel plant, which is scheduled to begin production in 2009 in the southern coastal province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau. Reuters
