Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh visited the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on May 16, where he participated in a roundtable conversation with CEOs and business leaders of a number of firms and investment funds listed on the NYSE.

PM Chinh expressed his delight at visiting the NYSE, the largest stock exchange in the world in terms of market capitalisation, and rang the iconic Closing Bell.

Some of the Vietnamese conglomerates are considering offering their shares on foreign exchanges, particularly the NYSE, in order to scale up their financial soundness. In April, Vingroup’s automobile arm VinFast submitted its application for an initial public offering to the US Securities Exchange Commission.

PM Chinh also attended the awarding ceremony between Vietnam and the US to further strengthen bilateral relations in various fields, including finance, banking, and investment funds.

Vietnam’s State Securities Commission and the NYSE have inked a cooperation agreement to facilitate Vietnam’s forthcoming market upgrade and provide a mechanism for investors to engage in both stock markets.
