After the period of quarantine, the company has resumed its operations in combination with applying the measures to prevent the COVID-19 from spread, monitoring employees’ health, supporting them rice, food, necessities and vitamin supplements.

General Director of Heineken Vietnam Brewery Company Limited - Quang Nam Nguyen Thanh Phuc said the factory still tries to maintain production activities and ensure the COVID-19 prevention. At present, a half of workers of the company are working at home to prevent the spread of the disease.

Economic growth amid COVID-19

The province allows foreign experts to enter Quang Nam for work but they are required to strictly obey the Vietnamese regulations on the Covid-19 prevention and control.

Quang Nam is now setting a new normal state in which all social and production activities are done in combination with the measures for Covid-19 infection prevention and control.
