REUTERS/Tyrone SiuHANOI (Reuters) - Taiwan-based electronics maker Foxconn turned out the first batch of display screens this week at its $26-million factory in Vietnam, the government of the southeast Asian nation said on Wednesday.
Most of the 20,000 screens to be produced each year at the factory in the northern province of Quang Ninh are destined for export, the government said in a statement.
Foxconn is to expand the Quang Ninh factory, which took a year to build, to eventually produce a million display screens and televisions, for total export revenue of about $250 million next year, the government said.
Foxconn, the world’s largest contract electronics maker, set up its first Vietnam factory in 2007 in the northern province of Bac Ninh.
