Toyo Ventures’ shares plunge 25% amid news report of Vietnamese contract termination

KUALA LUMPUR (July 4): Shares of Toyo Ventures Holdings Bhd (KL:TOYOVEN) plunged to its lowest in over one month on Thursday, following a news report of the termination of the Song Hau 2 thermal power plant project by the Vietnamese government.
