Singapore was ranked the third in nations and territories investing in Vietnam after South Korea and Japan. Average investment capital was US$23.75 million per project, much higher than that of foreign invested projects in Vietnam.

Foreign Investment Agency under the Ministry of Planning and Investment and Singapore’s United Overseas Bank also contracted another MOU on investment promotion.
