The three investors proposed the project at a recent meeting with the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee. Earlier, at a meeting with Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, William Weidner, chairman and CEO of Weidner Resorts, said that the group of investors wanted to build a modern trade centre with multiple functions, including entertainment, offices to let, and a shopping mall, adding that by joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership, Vietnam would attract investment from all over the world, and that Ho Chi Minh City had a lot of potential for development.
