Deputy Minister Son said that one of the important tasks of Vietnam’s chief representatives abroad is economic diplomacy, towards the promotion of trade and investment cooperation between Vietnam and other countries.
He noted that Vietnam is now a bright spot in investment attraction that is appreciated by many countries and major economic corporations in the world and the movement in the global investment chain is heading to Vietnam.
Through the reviews by Vietnamese representative agencies abroad, more than 126 large corporations are relocating their investments and wish to invest in Vietnam. This is a big opportunity for Vietnam to foster investment cooperation and select high-quality investment inflows, Son added.
Chairman of the Committee for the Management of State Capital at Enterprises Nguyen Hoang Anh said that the Vietnamese Government is boosting the equitisation and divestment of State-owned enterprises, thus the attraction of foreign investment capital is of great significance.
Amid the serious impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on the global economy, the connection of domestic enterprises with Vietnam’s chief representatives abroad is also important, thus helping enterprises to take advantage of opportunities, promote foreign trade activities, and attract investment, Anh noted.
