Asia Pacific Breweries (APB) Ltd is buying a stake of a joint venture with Ha Tay Breweries to resume a previously halted project to build a second brewery in Vietnam's Ha Tay province region.

The Saigon Times newspaper reported that the project with Ha Tay Brewery and a local partner was previously put on hold following a regional financial crisis. It is believed that APB intends to buy the stake of the local partner to resume work on the project.

APB currently produces Heineken, Tiger and Bivina beer in the district of Hoc Mon.
