Sep 15, 2023

On 15 September, MHT Management had the honor to welcome H.E. Mr. Andrew Goledzinowski, Australia’s Ambassador to Vietnam, and other senior officials of the Australian Embassy to our Nui Phao mine site.

CEO Craig Bradshaw, along with heads of departments, briefed the delegation with the Company’s vision and achievements in Vietnam and other countries where we were present. In addition, the delegation had the opportunity to witness the Nui Phao polymetallic mine, the world’s largest tungsten mine outside of China. Mr. Andrew Goledzinowski and the delegation highly appreciated the state-of-the-art technologies and sustainability initiatives taken by the Company. They were particularly interested in seeing the largest tungsten recycling plant in the region being built in Thai Nguyen in the near future.

Ms. Hoa Nguyen, Senior Business Development Manager at Austrade, said she was impressed by the Company’s amazing developments over a decade of partnering with us. Ms. Hoa emphasized that Masan High-Tech Materials’ success and contributions are not only heard in Vietnam but have truly reached out to the world.

Earlier, the Australian Embassy delegation met with Ms. Nguyen Thanh Hai, the provincial Party Secretary, along with senior representatives of the province’s key departments and bodies at the provincial Party Committee.

At the meeting, Ms. Nguyen Thanh Hai emphasized the honor of welcoming Mr. Andrew Goledzinowski and senior officials from the Australian Embassy to Thai Nguyen province on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Australia.

According to Ms. Nguyen Thanh Hai, Nui Phao is an exemplary company led by an Australian CEO with significant contributions to Thai Nguyen province. Australia is one of the global leading countries in the mining industry with cutting-edge technologies. In recent years, the Australian government has been assisting Vietnam in the revision of Vietnam Mineral Law by sharing Australia’s mining best practices and regulations. Hence, the visit to Nui Phao by the Australian Embassy delegation was of significant importance to Nui Phao Mining in particular and Thai Nguyen province in general.

The provincial Party Secretary expressed her hope that Mr. Andrew Goledzinowski and the Australian Embassy would help connect and introduce Australian businesses to investment opportunities in Thai Nguyen, especially in the fields of mining and processing, high-tech industries, education, and more.

Acknowledging the potential, strengths, and investment promotion orientation of Thai Nguyen Province, Mr. Ambassador affirmed that the Australian Embassy would take an interest in promoting the potential and strengths of Thai Nguyen to Australian businesses, aiming to enhance the effectiveness of investment cooperation between Thai Nguyen and Australian enterprises.
