Beijing (VNA) – Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong has urged Chinese enterprises to further expand their investment in Vietnam, using modern and environmentally friendly technologies, for sustainable development.

The Vietnamese Party chief made the call at a meeting on January 14 with representatives from a number of Chinese big firms currently operating in Vietnam, including the Huaxia Group, the China Construction Bank, the Sunshine Kaidi New Energy Group Co., Ltd, and the China Orient Asset Management Corporation.

Vietnam needs resources, capital as well as management experience during its industrialization-modernization and integration process, the Party leader said, asking Chinese investors to use local workers to help Vietnam train high-quality human resources.

He praised the companies for their strong development not only in China but also in international markets, affirming that Vietnam is willing to create the best possible conditions for foreign investors, including those from China to do business in the country.

Zhao Hong Jing, Chairman of the Huaxia Group, said his firm always gives priority to investment in high-tech fields under the Public-Private (PP) Partnership form.

The group, which specialises in construction-industry-urban development, is investing in industrial city projects in southern Dong Nai province and Hanoi.

Meanwhile, Chairman of the China Construction Bank Wang Hong Zhang said the bank wants to expand services at its office in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City in order to make more contributions to Vietnam’s economic development, and trade and investment links between Vietnam and China.

He hoped Vietnam will facilitate operation of businesses and investors in the country.-VNA
