Among the newly-licensed projects, there are seven foreign-invested ones worth of more than US $5 billion and seven domestic ones with a combined capital of VND 8,267 billion.

Most of these projects are large in terms of investment capital. The biggest one is the US $4.1 billion Sài Gòn Atlantis Hotel complex in Vũng Tàu City invested by Việt Nam’s Winvest Investment Company Ltd. It is followed by the US $600 million Tóc Tiên urban quarter.

According to the provincial People’s Committee, Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu will make full use of its available potentialities.
