Conglomerate Vingroup has announced its entry into the pharmaceutical industry with its Vinfa brand.
Along with pharmaceutical research, manufacturing, trading and export-import tasks, Vinfa will focus on the preservation, research and development of traditional Oriental medicines with origins in Vietnamese herbs.  
Following the success of the Vinmec Medical System and realising the expansion plan in the healthcare sector, Vingroup has established Vinfa Joint Stock Company in the pharmaceutical business, along with an investment to build Vinfa Drug Research and Production Centre in Gia Binh district, Bac Ninh province.
With a total investment of 2.2 trillion VND (97.7 million USD), the project’s first phase will be built in an area of nearly 10ha following international standards, including research, production, logistics and support works, according to Phan Thu Huong, Chairman of the Vinfa’s Board of Directors.
With investment from Vingroup, the entire production process at Vinfa will be equipped with the latest and advanced technologies to optimise the efficiency and quality of pharmaceutical products.
The objective of the Vinfa Drug Research and Production Centre is to produce and sell good-quality Oriental and Western medicines to serve the domestic and export markets.
Vinfa will also focus on the production of health food, vaccines and medical equipment of international standards to better meet the high demand for healthcare and treatment of people.
In addition to exploiting the country’s precious herbal resources, Vinfa plans to promote cooperation with prestigious pharmaceutical production industries from the United States, Europe and Australia. The aim is to receive consultancy, technology and technical expertise as well as facilitate the import of raw materials and products.
The group says the operation and quality-control process at Vinfa will have three core criteria: best-quality products, highly skilled and dedicated staff and striving towards professionalism.
The investment in the pharmaceutical production plant is considered a new step forward for Vingroup’s strategy of expansion in the healthcare sector to realise the mission of ‘Better Life for the Vietnamese’. Through Vinfa, we want to research, produce, import and export the best-quality products while preserving and developing precious medicinal herbs and traditional medicines of the country, said Huong.
Construction of the drug research centre is scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2018. - VNA
