People make it happen
Besra is an equal opportunity employer, we provide jobs for more than 1200 people, currently the majority of those people are local Vietnamese who work at our Vietnam operations. There are also a growing number of local Malaysian folks working with us at Bau. As we move through feasibility at the Bau project the numbers of people we employ there will obviously increase.
We’ve created economic growth in local communities resulting from our mine development & infrastructure projects. As much as we can, we hire, contract and purchase locally. In 2010 alone we injected approximately USD$40M into the local Vietnamese economy, this makes a pretty large and positive impact in these areas.
