HÀ NỘI – Việt Nam pursues a consistent policy of treating all investors, both domestic and foreign, equally, President Trần Đại Quang told Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem of the United Arab Emirates, Chairman of the DP World business group.
At a meeting in the Presidential Palace in Hà Nội, he renewed Việt Nam’s pledge to create the best possible conditions for foreign enterprises to do business in the country.
He praised efforts by DP World, which specialises in marine terminals and services and infrastructure investment, to promote its projects in Việt Nam, including major ones in transport and real estate like the Saigon Premier Container Terminal (SPCT) in HCM City and Halong Star Hotel in Quảng Ninh Province.
Việt Nam’s consistent viewpoint is considering foreign investors’ success as its own, he reiterated, noting that local agencies are actively seeking solutions to problems facing the SPCT project.
The country will continue overhauling its legal framework and relevant mechanisms to provide the most favourable environment for investors to contribute to its development, he added.
Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem noted that the UAE Government values the friendship with Việt Nam and encourages UAE businesses to invest in the Southeast Asian nation.
After eight years of operating in Việt Nam, DP World has realised the country’s sustainable development potential, and that’s why it is expanding investment here, he said. He elaborated that aside from seaport projects, the firm is considering investment in transport, industrial park and free trade area projects.
He also raised proposals pertaining to DP World’s activities in Việt Nam, such as designating shipping lanes and port service fees.VNS
