HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc on Friday stressed that the Vietnamese Government always provides all possible support for investors, including those from the Republic of Korea (RoK) and Samsung Việt Nam, to expand operations in the country.
During a reception in Hà Nội for General Director of Samsung Việt Nam Choi Joo-ho, PM Phúc hailed RoK investors, especially Samsung, for maintaining their position as the top foreign investor in Việt Nam.
Expressing support for the group’s plan to expand investment in Việt Nam, he wished that it would not only assemble electronics but also extend its technological capacity and assist Việt Nam in launching e-government, a field in which it has wide experience.
The leader lauded the group’s investment in building the Office of the Research and Development Centre in Hà Nội, adding that he has assigned the Ministry of Planning and Investment and the municipal authorities to consider the group’s suggestions, ensure the progress of the work and promptly report to him if necessary.
The PM proposed that Samsung continue offering training and technological transfer to Vietnamese supporting enterprises, especially small- and medium-sized ones, to join the supply of materials and spare parts to the group.
Choi said Samsung Việt Nam strives to fulfil set targets and achieve growth in different areas.
He also suggested ministries, agencies and Bắc Ninh Province create favourable conditions for the group, particularly the Samsung Display Việt Nam, to further contribute to Việt Nam's economic growth. — VNS
