He expressed his hope that foreign investors will bolster investment in fields and projects which Vietnam has great demand for, such as infrastructure and energy.
At the meeting, foreign investors discussed with the PM the potential of key sectors in Vietnam, including liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects, and voiced their wish to cooperate with Vietnam in this sector and receive support of the government, thus contributing to the country’s economic development.
The investors also said they wanted to invest in Vietnam via the country’s stock market and purchase of corporate stocks.
