The Chairman of Ho Chi Minh City’s People’s Committee briefed the Indian guests on the city’s economic development and greatly supported the group’s plans for investment into Viet Nam’s southern hub.
Previously, Alan Rosling and his entourage had met with the Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister, Pham Gia Khiem. The meeting had also included ministers and representatives of state-owned and private companies looking for potential investment opportunities in Viet Nam.
Tata Group has 96 companies working in the areas of information technology and communications, manufacturing industry, materials, services, electricity, consumption and chemical products.
In May 2007, Tata Steel, a subsidiary of the Tata Group, signed an agreement with the Viet Nam Steel Corporation (Vinasteel) to build a steel production plant in central Ha Tinh province.
The Indian delegation said that in addition to the steel production, Tata Group was considering investing in the chemical, electrical and telecommunications areas of Viet Nam. This interest was ignited due to the great investment opportunities in the country for both domestic and international companies.
