HA NOI (VNS) — Singapore's Temasek wants to step up investments in Viet Nam and plans to seek partnerships in finance, hi-tech, consumer goods and healthcare, Cheo Hock Kuan, Temasek International's Head of Strategic and Public Affairs, said at a meeting with Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc yesterday.

Temasek established a representative office in Viet Nam in February 2005, with its investment list covering a range of sectors such as natural resources, agro-fishery, information technology and banking, according to Cheo Hock Kuan.

She noted that Viet Nam created favourable conditions for Temasek and other foreign investors, helping them operate productively and contribute to growing ties.

Deputy PM Phuc hailed Temasek as a viable business in Viet Nam that helps to reinforce the partnership between the two countries.

He said Viet Nam has been improving its investment and business environment, and the Government is working to provide the best possible conditions for foreign investors.

He suggested that the group invest in mineral processing, food technology and tourism. — VNS
