This will form the foundations of the Project and presence in the local area, allowing us more opportunities to liaise directly with key local officials, suppliers, and local community groups. It also allows us to directly invest in the local area and lay the first building block as the La Gan Project progresses. As development progresses and we prepare for construction we will need much larger premises and a bigger local workforce to support this exciting pioneering project.

Tuy Phong and the Binh Thuan province have a wealth of skills and resources to support the La Gan Project, and we are very keen to focus on utilizing these and maximizing local content where possible.

Our priority is to coexist and give back to the local community, while also providing Vietnam with an alternative source of green energy to benefit ours and our future generation in the battle against climate change.’
