Speaking at the event, Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment Vu Dai Thang said the RoK is now the largest investor, the second largest tourism and bilateral development cooperation partner, and the third largest trade partner of Viet Nam.

With over US$66 billion worth of total registered capital, Korean firms are playing an active role in key economic sectors in Viet Nam such as apparel, electronics, infrastructure, energy, automobiles, aerospace, finance-banking, and logistics, the official said.

He noted that the Vietnamese Government will prioritize projects using advanced and clean technology, giving high added values and linking with the global supply chain.

On the occasion, Thang chaired a dialogue with representatives from more than 20 Korean enterprises interested in doing business in Viet Nam and responded to their suggestions in the fields of energy, transportation, infrastructure and processing industry./.
