PARIS – Việt Nam always welcomes foreign investors, including those from France, said General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee Nguyễn Phú Trọng.
In a meeting with leaders of major enterprises in France yesterday, the Party chief hailed Airbus, the world’s leading aircraft manufacturer, for its fruitful co-operation with Vietnamese partners, contributing to the enhancement of bilateral cooperative ties between Việt Nam and France.
General Secretary Trọng said he hoped the group would reap greater achievements from its business operations in Việt Nam.
He also spoke highly of Bouygues Group’s investment in infrastructure projects in Việt Nam, expressing his hope that the company would further co-operation with Việt Nam in the field, helping the country speed up its industrialisation and modernisation processes.
The group, which has been involved in developing many infrastructure projects in Việt Nam including Phú Lương Bridge, Hải Vân Tunnel and the upgrade of Hàng Đẫy Stadium, expressed hopes that Việt Nam would complete mechanisms and policies to create a stable legal corridor for investors.
The Party leader also applauded the investment in Việt Nam by TOTAL Group, one of the world’s leading oil and gas companies. He stressed that with a population of nearly 100 million, Việt Nam has great demand for energy to meet its production and consumption needs. — VNS
