Housing project is growing initiative

Tobacco growers and their families in Vietnam have moved into new homes built for them under an Imperial Tobacco responsibility initiative.

Project Symphony is the result of a collaboration between Imperial Tobacco Vietnam, its local partner DOFICO and the Altadis Foundation.

The homes, constructed from brick and steel, have been built in the provinces of Dong Nai and Tay Ninh, where DOFICO is based.

“Project Symphony has been a tremendous example of partners working together to the benefit of those in the rural environment,” said Alistair Hepburn, general manager Indochina.

“DOFICO and Imperial, together with the local community, identified the most needy families and constructed 10 new houses, directly supporting communities within our tobacco growing areas.

“The project has been acclaimed by local authorities and plans are in place to invest further in 2013.”
