HANOI, 27 June 2012 - The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and Viet Nam’s Foreign Investment Agency (FIEs) rolled out a new industrial investment report for the country today. The paper is backed by a monitoring platform which will highlight investment opportunities in the country.
The report was based on a survey of 1,494 enterprises operating in industry and construction, with FIEs accounting for 58 per cent of respondents.
In parallel, with an investment of USD 975,000 from the UN Foundation, the platform will monitor approximately two thousand enterprises in nine provinces across Viet Nam. Thirty three per cent of these are small and medium enterprises, most of involved in engineering, textile and garment, rubber and plastics.
“In recent years, Viet Nam has recorded a rather high industrial growth rate largely due to the high levels of foreign direct investment which impacts should be better evaluated. The platform will provide a better guide to manage these projects,” said Do Nhat Hoang, head of MPI's foreign investment department during the launch.
