Of which, Hoa Phat provided domestic and foreign markets with 381,000 tons of construction steel and high quality steel, posting 80 per cent month-on-month increase. Sales volume increased again mainly thanks to the domestic market being in construction season and the export market increased by 76 per cent compared to the previous month.

HRC steel output in March reached 263,000 tons, slightly decreased over the previous month. In addition, Hoa Phat's downstream steel products including steel pipes and galvanized steel sheets recorded more than 42,000 tons and 32,000 tons, equivalent to February 2024.

Currently, the group is accelerating the progress of the Hoa Phat Dung Quat 2 Steel Integrated Complex project with a scale of 5.6 million tons of high quality HRC per year. When the project is put into operation in 2025, Hoa Phat's annual steel production capacity will be 14.6 million tons, of which HRC alone will reach 8.6 million tons a year.
