SEMBCORP Industries' joint venture (JV) company, Vietnam Singapore Industrial Park and Township Development Joint Stock Company (VSIP JSC), has inked a conditional JV agreement with Nishi-Nippon Railroad Co (NNR), to develop a residential project in Hai Phong City, Vietnam.

The residential development comprises landed houses and shophouses for sale with clubhouse amenities.

VSIP JSC is the master developer behind the 1,600-hectare VSIP Hai Phong, where the proposed residential development will be situated.
