Hanoi (VNA) – More than 3.23 billion USD of foreign direct investment (FDI) was poured into Ho Chi Minh City in the first eight months of 2017, up 1.57 times from the same period last year.

According to the municipal Department of Planning and Investment, major FDI projects registered in the period included Saigon Silicon project worth some 40 million USD.
