Ho Chi Minh City’s CT Group is planning to build an industrial zone in Myanmar to house Vietnamese investors.

The group has submitted plans for the Vietnam-Myanmar Industrial Zone to Myanmar Vice President Nyan Tun. CT has not yet released details to the public.

The top exporting country to Myanmar is China, followed by Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, Malaysia, India, Germany and Vietnam.

The Myanmar Investment Commission reported that by the end of August the country registered more than $43 billion in foreign investment. China topped the list, followed by Thailand and Singapore. Vietnam was the eighth.
