The Government chief said that Viet Nam is now home to 21,000 foreign-funded projects with total registered capital of over US$300 billion.

In 2016, the country lured around US$18 billion in foreign direct investment, which reflects the attractiveness of the business environment, he added.

PM Phuc affirmed that the Vietnamese Government stands ready to learn about foreign investors’ ideas in order to guarantee a healthy and equitable business environment.

For his part, Mr. Bin Sulayem said he has strong belief in Viet Nam’s growth prospect, especially seaport development potential.

He expressed his hope that the Vietnamese Government would continue facilitating the Group’s investment activities in Viet Nam.

The DP Group is the co-owner of the Saigon Premier Container Terminal (SPCT) which located on the western shore of the Soai Rap River in the 40-hectare Hiep Phuoc Industrial Park and 16km from Ho Chi Minh city center.

It is a state-of-the-art facility which began operations in October 2009, just two years after construction began./.
