Notably, apart from 131 projects, Japanese firms adjusted capital for 91 projects and contributed capital and purchased shares of 155 projects in Vietnam.

A number of projects that have investment capital worth billions of US dollars include the US$1.31 billion O Mon II Thermal Power Plant project in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho, and the US$611.4 million Kraft Vina Paper Factory project in the northern province of Vinh Phuc.

Phase VIII will also help reform State-owned enterprises (SOEs), accelerate the supporting industries, and resolve land-related issues.

In addition, Phase VIII will address a number of macro-economic issues, along with feasible policy recommendations aimed at improving the local investment environment, attracting more Japanese investments in Vietnam.
