 Malaysia heads a list of 40 countries and territories who have invested in Vietnam over the last nine months, following the licensing of its 9.8 billion USD project to construct a steel complex in southern Ninh Thuan province.

The corporation has also invested 230 million USD in projects being implemented in the centre of Bien Hoa city in southern Dong Nai province and 500 million USD in projects being carried out in Thach Ban new city in Hanoi .


The Malaysian ambassador to Vietnam Lim Kim Eng praised the investing environment in Vietnam in general and in Hanoi in particular and said it has attracted an increasing number of foreign investors, including Malaysian businesses.


Malaysian investors have plans to invest in real estate as well as in the construction of hospitals, hotels, banks and production factories, she added.
