Hoa Phat Group (HPG) sold 1.09 million tonnes of construction steel in the first half of 2018, growing 8 percent versus the same period last year. According to Viet Capital Securities Company, the single-digit growth was mostly due to HPG’s basic oxygen furnace maintenance in the second quarter and also because the company has already been running at its full capacity since the end of 2017. Its steel pipe sales leapt 15 percent year-on-year to 314,200 tonnes.

HCM City GTN Foods Company (GTN) has announced its after-tax profit in the January-June period at VND24 billion, up 41 percent year-on-year, which was primarily attributed to its higher ownership in the dairy subsidiary Moc Chau Milk and a scale-down in the loss-making pig farming business.
