HK's Yue Yuen says Vietnam production suspended on Wednesday
HONG KONG May 14 (Reuters) - Yue Yuen Industrial Holdings Ltd, the manufacturer of footwear for Nike Inc , Adidas and other international leisure brands, said it had suspended production in Vietnam on Wednesday amid anti-China protests over a territorial dispute between the two countries.
Jerry Shum, head of investor relations at Yue Yuen in Hong Kong, said it was not immediately clear when production would resume, adding that the disruption on Wednesday would not have any significant impact on its operations for now.
