[Hanoi Yonhap News]On the 12th, interviews with local officials revealed that there are differences in the status of new coronavirus vaccination of employees among large Korean companies operating in Vietnam. .. The LG Group has donated about 1.6 billion won (about 154 million yen) to the northern city of Haiphong, where the production bases of its affiliated companies are located, as a donation to the vaccine fund, but it has not yet secured the required amount of vaccine. According to LG officials, LG Electronics manufactures home appliances and auto parts at its Haiphong factory and employs 2,000 people. LG Display has about 20,000 people, and LG Innotek has 1,500 people. Vietnam has been hit by the new corona epidemic “Fourth Wave” since late April. There are almost no infected people in Haiphong so far, but if there are infected people in the field, the production line may be suspended, so LG group companies are vaccination so that employees can be vaccinated as soon as possible. I am struggling to secure it. However, the Vietnamese government is having difficulty procuring vaccines, and even if it is secured, it is expected that supply to Ho Chi Minh, where the infection will spread rapidly, will be prioritized. Meanwhile, the Minister of Health of Vietnam called on a Korean company that donated to the government’s vaccine fund on the 25th of last month to thank him. Samsung Electronics, which donated 2.8 billion won to the central government and provinces of Vietnam, and SK, which donated 1 million dollars (about 110 million yen) to the central government, were called. LG donated to the ministry, so it seems they weren’t invited to this seat hosted by the Ministry of Health. Samsung Electronics has about 32,500 employees from three bases in Vietnam who have completed the first vaccination. In addition, about 2,000 employees of CJ, which delivered 6.49 billion dong (about 31 million yen) to the Ministry of Finance of Vietnam as a vaccine fund, received the first vaccination. LG, unable to procure the vaccine, met with the ambassador to Vietnam and the Consul General of South Korea on the 9th of this month to meet with the Communist Party of Vietnam Secretary and Mayor of Haiphong City to request assistance. We will also request the central government. Regarding this situation, a local official pointed out that “business in Vietnam requires a pipe with the Vietnamese government and know-how to properly invest resources.” Samsung Electronics and CJ are said to have procured the vaccine by utilizing the human network they have built locally without asking the Korean embassy for help.
