PITTSBORO — Chatham County has created two new ways for the public to stay updated on the VinFast project in Moncure.

The Chatham County website now has a dedicated web page for VinFast news located at www.chathamcountync.gov/vinfast. The web page will provide information on the VinFast project including latest news, frequently asked questions, upcoming events, and helpful web links, and will continue to be updated throughout the project.

The public also can receive updates on the VinFast project directly in their email by signing up for VinFast News e-notifications. Individuals may sign up for this free service by accessing the e-notification section on the VinFast web page or by going directly to the e-notification section on the county website.

“The VinFast project is an exciting opportunity for Chatham County, and it will impact many facets of our community,” said Kara Lusk Dudley, Chatham County’s public information officer. “We also understand that the public will have a lot of questions throughout the process, so we wanted to create the VinFast web page and e-notification to help people easily stay informed.”

On March 29, Vietnamese automotive manufacturer VinFast announced that it selected Chatham County, North Carolina, to build its first manufacturing facility in the United States. This $4 billion investment is the largest economic development project in North Carolina history and will create at least 7,500 jobs over the next five years.

Dudley also said the county plans similar web and email update projects for Wolfspeed, which last Friday announced plans for a $5 billion facility at Siler City’s CAM (Chatham Advanced Manufacturing) site.
