It's great to see that Ecolab, an American-listed company, is boosting its operations locally. Its industrial customers in Vietnam and across Southeast Asia will benefit from the teams' expertise, technology, and solution delivery."

"Water scarcity, food hygiene, and public health are some of the greatest challenges the world faces today. We look forward to deeper partnerships between Ecolab and local ecosystem players to help create a greener future," added Harris.
