Da Nang’s total development investment was estimated at over 7 trillion VND in the first quarter, down 8.1 percent compared to the same period last year.

The FDI sector has seen a rise in investment attraction thanks to the implementation of several big projects, notably the Sunshine aerospace components manufacturing facility launched by the Universal Alloy Corporation Vietnam, and the Japan-invested Mikazuki Spa & Hotel Report project.

To date, the city has welcomed 844 FDI projects totalling 3.47 billion USD.

Meanwhile, Da Nang has attracted four state-owned projects with a combined capital of over 8.61 trillion VND since the start of the year, bringing the total to 335 projects and 112.6 trillion VND in investment.
