Hanoi (VNA) – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc asked Thailand’s Siam Cement Group (SCG) to expand investment to more fields in Vietnam while receiving SCG President and CEO Roongrote Rangsiyopash in Hanoi on April 5.

He said Vietnam hopes that SCG will reap success in its cooperation and investment projects in Vietnam, including the oil refinery and petrochemical project it is implementing in partnership with the Vietnam National Oil and Gas Group (PetroVietnam).

The Vietnamese Government will provide the best possible conditions for SCG to carry out this project as soon as possible, he stressed.

The PM added that the group’s investment in Vietnam is suitable and will benefit both sides at a time when Vietnam enjoys vigorous growth and wants to attract investment.

The SCG President and CEO thanked the Vietnamese Government for supporting the group’s investment, noting that SCG is stepping up the joint petrochemical project with PetroVietnam since this is the firm’s most important project in Vietnam.

He also expressed his hope for continued support from the Government and relevant agencies for SCG’s activities in Vietnam.-VNA
