Swing Corporation (President: Shigeo Mizutani, Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo) signed a construction contract for the improvement of water supply facilities in Vinh Phuc Province, the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, provided as part of a yen loan project "Vinh Phuc Province Investment Climate Improvement Project," supported by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

Since our entry to the Vietnamese market in the 1990s, we have so far received orders for and delivered construction works of water supply and sewage systems under the yen loan projects mainly for large cities such as Hanoi, the country’s capital and Ho Chi Minh City; making this contract the sixth won in Vietnam.
■Hanoi City: Tang Long-Van Tri Water Purification Plant, Tang Long-Van Tri Wastewater Treatment Plant, Truc Bach Wastewater Treatment Plant, Kim Lien Wastewater Treatment Plant
■Ho Chi Minh City: Binh Hung Wastewater Treatment Plant

In this contract, we were highly rated for proposing engineering and after-delivery support arrangements based on the local needs that reflect the customer's desire, taking advantage of our local affiliate (Swing Water Vietnam Corporation), as well as for our rich construction work track record in the field of the country’s water infrastructure. Vietnam is one of the top priority countries in our overseas marketing strategy, and going forward, more of the water supply and sewage development projects are expected to be planned that utilize various JICA schemes. We will continue to work proactively for these opportunities, drawing on our successful experience.
