Despite the complicated developments of the Covid-19 pandemic, the number of newly-registered and capital-added projects invested by ROK firms is still increasing.

Nearly 60 Vietnamese localities nationwide have attracted investment from the ROK, led by the northern province of Bac Ninh with 957 projects worth US$10.7 billion, accounting for 14.9 percent of the northeast Asian country’s total investment in Vietnam.

The ROK’s investment projects have been quickly disbursed, significantly contributing to socio-economic growth and development in the Southeast Asian country, Toan said.

ROK firms’ projects mainly focus on the processing and manufacturing industry with 4,543 projects totaling US$53.1 billion, making up 73.5 percent of the country’s investment total in Vietnam.
