VGP – The Vietnamese Government and agencies will continue facilitating foreign investors such as Jardines Matheson Group to expand operation and investment in Viet Nam, said Deputy PM Trinh Dinh Dung at his reception for Managing Director of the Jardine Matheson Group Ben Keswick in Ha Noi on September 10.

At the meeting, the Deputy PM expressed his delight with Viet Nam-UK Strategic Partnership, especially in fields of economics, trade and investment. 

In 2018, the two-way trade value hit US$6.74 billion, an increase of 9.5% against the pervious year. 

Viet Nam is restructuring the State-owned enterprises and corporations, which creates an opportunity for foreign investors such as Jardine Matheson Group to own and monitor Viet Nam’s big firms in all fields, he said. 

He suggested the Group focus on investment in current sectors and consider expanding investment in infrastructure, especially transport and urban infrastructure, energy, industry, auxiliary industry and tourism.  

For his side, Ben Keswick spoke highly of the Vietnamese Government’s policies on attracting investment, improving the investment and business environment, asserting that Jardines Matheson will continue investing in current sectors and consider investing in new areas of the Government’s priorities. 

The Group has poured US$2.5 billion into Viet Nam since 1992.
