Reasons for selecting Vietnam now: Ability of producing a stable supply of Japanese quality

Nipro Pharma selected Hai Phong, Vietnam, as the location for its first overseas production. This was because diligent people and reliable infrastructure would be available in Vietnam to achieve high quality, and because the geopolitical conditions of Vietnam would guarantee stable supply systems. By the launch of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), the location is also suitable for developing markets in surrounding countries in Asia.
