Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has allowed state-run Vietnam Steel Corporation to sign a memorandum of understanding with the Indian investor on the project in central Ha Tinh province, said the online report.

The complex is expected to have a capacity of 4.5 million tons a year, using raw materials from the Thach Khe iron mine, it said.
