HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam would continue to create favourable conditions for foreign investors, including those with financial potential and modern management strength from Japan and the Republic of Korea, said Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc.
PM Phúc met Chairman of Japan’s Maruhan Corporation Han Chang-woo in Hà Nội on Monday, during which he thanked Han for his efforts to promote Maruhan’s investment in Việt Nam.
The Vietnamese leader congratulated Maruhan on its investment and business achievements in banking, insurance, construction, food production and entertainment services, saying that Việt Nam had devised a strategy on banking development till 2025 with a vision to 2030 to serve the country’s economic development.
He said Việt Nam attached great importance to foreign investors and wanted to attract more foreign investment in finance, banking, infrastructure, high-tech agriculture and innovation.
He expressed his belief that Việt Nam’s economy would continue to develop, adding that Maruhan wanted to increase its investment in Việt Nam and contribute to the country’s development.
PM Phúc said Việt Nam’s economy had recorded stable growth in recent years, which made the country an attractive market for foreign firms, with some US$40 billion worth of foreign investment pouring into the country each year.
The total foreign investment in Việt Nam in the first quarter of 2019 was 1.5 times higher than the same period last year, he said. — VNS
