In his opening remark, Nguyen Tat Thanh, Vietnamese Ambassador to Thailand, emphasised the positive trade and investment relations between the two countries since Vietnam has become a full member of the ASEAN in 1995. Special mention was made of the two countries upgrading their relationship to a strategic partnership in 2013.

As reported by the Nation, so far there has been 2,000 Thai enterprises who registered with the Thai Embassy in Vietnam. Many small and medium-sized Thai enterprises are developing their activities in Vietnam to capitalise on its potential.

The other workshop was held at Hilton Kuala Lumpur on March 22, with more than 70 participants. Deloitte, Dezan Shira & Associates, and United Overseas Bank were the co-organisers, and they also came as speakers at the workshop. Key elements of Vietnam’s attractiveness for foreign investors were covered, together with the latest legal framework and favourable incentives.

The seminar in Kuala Lumpur was highlighted with the participation of representatives from the Nghe An People’s Committee. The province’s strong commitment has ensured business partners and investors about the most favourable and comprehensive investment environment in the province as well as in Central Vietnam.

At both events, VSIP’s projects in Central Vietnam, including VSIP Nghe An and VSIP Quang Ngai, were introduced to investors as good choices for their future business. More workshops are expected to be planned and organised in overseas countries in the second quarter of this year.
