The Saigon Invest Group (SGI) has been selected to be a member of the World Economic Forum’s Advisory Council for Global Growth Companies, becoming the first Vietnamese firm to gain such a position.

The move shows that the world appreciates and values Vietnam as a country with high growth and potential opportunities for development, SGI Chairman Dang Thanh Tam told a Vietnam News Agency correspondent on the sidelines of the 41st WEF annual meeting in Davos on Jan. 29.

The Ho Chi Minh City-based group is one of the leading developers of industrial parks, high-tech parks, urban zones and other business fields in Vietnam./.
