HCM City (VNA)
- Chairman of the People Committee of Ho Chi Minh City Nguyen Thanh Phong received entrepreneurs from some multinational groups on August 24 to brief them on investment promotion opportunities in the city.

As the biggest economic and financial hub in the south of Vietnam and an attractive destination for foreign investment, HCM City has spared no efforts to improve the investment climate and enable overseas enterprises to make long-term investment, especially in the fields of clean energy and smart cities, the city leader said.

He believed with their experience in energy, the US Cache Solar and Arab Saudi March Global Inc will meet the increasing demand of the city and generate more jobs for local workers.

The city welcomes and will create all favourable conditions for the ASEAN Golden Link Inc to invest in building a complex of hi-end hotels and restaurants in the city, contributing to the development of tourism infrastructure, Phong affirmed.

Leading officials of the groups expressed their interest in cooperation potential with HCM City in renewable energy and green energy. They said they hope to partner with HCM City in various fields, including waste treatment, inundation prevention, tourism promotion, and trade of farm produce and food.-VNA
