In alliance with the Binh Duong People's Committee of Binh Duong, BW and its joint venture partner ESR have equipped the factory warehouse with electricity, water, and sanitary facilities to ensure a safe and seamless experience.

Duong Chi Nam, deputy head of the Health Ministry's Health Environment Management Agency, said Binh Duong Field Hospital Treatment Centre No. 2, as the facility will be known, will be equipped with a few hundred of the 300-400 of its 5,000 beds with ventilators and be staffed by 250 medical workers and associates.

Earlier this month, BW donated VND1 billion to the Vietnam Fatherland Front Committee of Binh Duong Province in response to a call for public donations to buy vaccines.

The company's CEO, Lance Li, said: "An important element of our corporate culture is giving back to the communities in which we operate. As BW continues its growth trajectory, we are committed to joining hands with the country in the fight against Covid-19."

"Vietnam is a key market for ESR's strategy, and we are honoured to act together with BW in support of the country, particularly Binh Duong," said Michael de Jong-Douglas, senior managing director of ESR.

ESR is an the largest APAC-focused logistics real estate platform and strategic partner to BW.

Strategically located to the north of Ho Chi Minh City in the Binh Duong market, a leading industrial hub in southern Vietnam, the My Phuoc 4 Industrial Park will consist of approximately 240,000 square metres of logistics and light industrial facilities.

Benefitting from a prime location with excellent motorway access and connectivity to densely populated areas, including major industrial clusters, ports, and airports, the park will cater to various local and international tenants.

Upon completion of the project in August 2021, ESR will work with BW to lease the My Phuoc 4 Industrial Park, leveraging on its robust roster of customers relationships.
