HA NOI (VNS) — A senior figure with the Taiwanese Chamber of Commerce in Viet Nam said Taiwanese would pour more money into Viet Nam.
He said this was because Taiwan industry hit in the recent rioting had been looked after by the Vietnamese Government.
Chairwoman Liu Mei-te gave the assurance during a meeting with Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung in Ha Noi yesterday.
She praised the Government's action in stopping the riots and helping enterprises get back on their feet.
However, she suggested the Government could offer more tax incentives.
PM Dung assured his guest that foreign companies, including those from Taiwan, had vast room for growth in Viet Nam.
He said China's illegal oil rig also incited some elements who destroyed and stole property from several firms.
According to the director of the Finance Ministry's Insurance Supervisory Authority, Phung Ngoc Khanh, insurance companies may have to pay out VND2 trillion (US$94 million) for the damage. — VNS
