Japan's Bridgestone Corp's Vietnam unit has secured a
licence to double its total investment in a car tyre factory in
the northern port city of Haiphong to $1.22 billion from $574.8
million, the Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper said.
Bridgestone's project is the second-largest foreign invested
project in the city after a $1.5 billion project invested by a
South Korean firm, the report said.
