HA NOI — Viet Nam is willing to create favourable conditions for US businesses to invest in the country, affirmed Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc.
Phuc made the affirmation yesterday while receiving a delegation of representatives from nearly 30 US businesses operating in fields such as information technology, education and healthcare, which was led by US Ambassador to Singapore David Adelman.
Phuc stressed that the US business community had contributed to the socio-economic development of Viet Nam and to Viet Nam-US relations generally.
He hoped that the visit would increase US understanding of Viet Nam's economic policies and would open up opportunities for economic, trade and investment co-operation.
The deputy PM stressed that when investing in Viet Nam, foreign businesses were considered a crucial part of the country's economy and their success was also Viet Nam's success.
Ambassador Adelman said US businesses wanted to seek business opportunities in Viet Nam because the country was an actively developing economy with market potential.
He hoped that the quality of human resources and work force in Viet Nam would be improved to meet the demands of development. — VNS
