Vietnam is appealing for investment in the hi-tech fields of manufacturing and processing in underprivileged localities, says Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai.

Deputy PM Hai asserted this at the annual VinaCaptial Investor Conference in Ho Chi Minh City on October 17, which drew the participation of nearly 90 foreign investors seeking investment opportunities in Vietnam.

The Deputy PM said the Vietnamese Government is urging its ministries and sectors to perfect a legal corridor in the field to create a favourable environment for investors.

He clarified that the Government has directed the implementation of several solutions and policies to restore investors’ market confidence.

The government has focused on stabilising macroeconomics, reasonably maintaining economic growth, curbing inflation, promoting business manufacturing, and improving the State’s management.

The conference will run until October 18.-VNA
