The FIA said the total FDI pledges rose but the number of projects fell sharply as a result of Vietnam’s selective policy which dismissed small projects with little added value.

Manufacturing was the most attractive sector to foreign investors, receiving 18.1 billion USD, accounting for 58.2% of the total capital pledges, followed by electricity generation with 5.7 billion USD.

The largest foreign investor in Vietnam during 2021 was Singapore at 10.7 billion USD, followed by the Republic of Korea and Japan, which invested 5 billion USD and 3.9 billion USD respectively.

In 2021 the port city of Hai Phong became the largest recipient of foreign investment with 5.26 billion USD, while Long An came second with 3.84 billion.
