Singapore takes very serious view of incidents at two industrial parks in Vietnam
Singapore says it takes a very serious view of the incidents at two industrial parks in Vietnam jointly managed by a SembCorp Industries unit and a Vietnamese state-owned enterprise.
Three factories in the park were set on fire last night - the result of anti-Chinese riots by Vietnamese protesters.
In a statement, Singapore's Ministry of Foreign Affairs says that the Singapore Embassy in Hanoi and the Consulate-General in Ho Chi Minh City have separately requested the relevant Vietnamese authorities to restore order urgently.
This morning, MFA called in the Vietnam Ambassador to Singapore to register its serious concerns about the security situation in the two industrial parks run by a unit of SembCorp Industries.
MFA says it has requested the Vietnamese government to act immediately to restore law and order before the security situation worsens and investor confidence is undermined.
