PM Phuc congratulated VINCI for becoming the major bidder and launching the CW1 project – a clean water supply pipe line from Binh Thai to Dien Bien Phu streets (HCMC). The host leader highly valued the VICI in general and VINCI Construction Grands Projects in particular for effective operation in such areas as environmental protection as well as sewage treatment. ​

PM Phuc hoped that VINCI would continue to invest in Viet Nam in infrastructure, environment, and modern technology. 

For his part, Mr. Jerome Stubler said his group implemented a wastewater treatment project in Hoi An, the central province of Quang Nam 10 years ago and will carry out a water supply project using high technology in Ho Chi Minh City in the coming time.

He expressed wish to engage in other major water supply and drainage projects in Vietnam and even urban railway projects in HCM City.

He also said that his group recently signed a cooperation agreement on investment in the Thanh Hoa-Ninh Binh section of the North-South Expressway with the Viet Nam Expressway Corporation (VEC).

VNCI hopes the Vietnamese Government, ministries, agencies and localities will support the group in implementing this project, he said, adding that the group will contribute to human resources development in the country.

Receiving Sakkara Group’s President Neil Robert Wilson, PM Phuc said that there are huge investment opportunities for the group in Viet Nam. 

PM Phuc recommended the group expand investment to other fields, such as transport, environment, waste and waste water treatment, and infrastructure development in the forms of build – operate – transfer (BOT) and private – public – partnership (PPP).

He affirmed that the Government of Vietnam always facilitates foreign investment in the country.

For his part, Neil Robert Wilson expressed his impression of Vietnam’s hosting of the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week.

According to him, the group decided to make investment in Viet Nam considering the country’s young and dynamic population. He said Sakkara has gained success since entering Vietnam in 2003, noting that Viet Nam is the only foreign market the group has made investment in.

He expressed his hope for more assistance from the Government of Viet Nam and the PM for his group when it invests in large-scale projects on home development and equitization of State-owned enterprises./.
