HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc has asked Thailand’s Siam Cement Group (SCG) to expand its investments in the country.
Receiving SCG President and CEO Roongrote Rangsiyopash in Hà Nội on Wednesday, he said Việt Nam hopes that the Thai group will reap success in its co-operation and investment projects in Việt Nam, including the oil refinery and petrochemical project that it is implementing in partnership with the Vietnam National Oil and Gas Group (PetroVietnam).
The Vietnamese Government will provide the best possible conditions for SCG to carry out this project as soon as possible, the PM said. The group’s investment in Việt Nam is suitable and will benefit both sides at a time when Việt Nam is enjoying vigorous growth and is seeking more investment, he added.
The SCG President and CEO thanked the Vietnamese Government for supporting the group’s investments, noting that they were expediting the joint petrochemical project with PetroVietnam, since it was their most important project in Việt Nam.
He also expressed his hope for continued support from the Government and relevant agencies. — VNS
