Bangkok (VNA) –
Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has welcomed major groups of Thailand such as Thaibev, Amata and Siam Cement Group to make big investment in Vietnam.

At a reception for leaders of Thai groups having invested in Vietnam in Bangkok on June 23 on the sidelines of the 34th ASEAN Summit, PM Phuc suggested them expand investment in high-tech and environmentally friendly fields.

He affirmed that the Vietnamese Government will create all possible favourable conditions for Thai investors to successfully do business in Vietnam, especially in the realms of the Government’s top priorities.

Vietnam will not receive foreign direct investment at all costs, but only welcomes high-tech, environmentally friendly and energy-saving projects, he stressed.

A leader of the beverage company ThaiBev asked the Vietnamese Government to support it to invest in other fields apart from beverages as well as increase its ownership ratio in the Saigon Beer-Alcohol-Beverage Corporation (Sabeco).

ThaiBev said it will respond to the Vietnamese Government’s suggestion of investing in waste and plastic treatment, and environmental protection.
