Kuala Lumpur (VNA) – About 170 Malaysian companies attended a seminar on investment in Vietnam and opportunities offered by the equitisation process of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) held in Kuala Lumpur on November 24.

The event was co-organised by the Vietnamese Embassy in Malaysia and the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE).

Dang Quyet Tien, deputy head of the Agency for Corporate Finance under the Ministry of Finance briefed the participants on the equitisation process of SOEs in Vietnam.

He also introduced the Vietnamese government’s equitisation policies and highlighted investment opportunities generated from the process.

Malaysian businesses showed their interest in the issue through discussions on the various aspects of the topic and the Vietnamese investment environment.

They also asked for more information on macro and micro issues such as investment procedures, property ownership and exchange rate, among others.

The event is part of activities of the Vietnamese Embassy in Malaysia, aiming to promote and attract investors from Malaysia, said Pham Cao Phong, Vietnamese Ambassador to Malaysia.

He also expressed his hope that Malaysian companies will understand better and be able to grasp the opportunities brought by the Vietnamese equitisation process, thus making plans and implementing projects in Vietnam.-VNA
