ASEAN KEY DESTINATIONS
Vietnamese seek Malaysian business partners
Areas for collaboration would include real estate, construction and infrastructure under the government's public-private partnership model, said Bitexco Chairman Vu Quang Hoi.
"We're ready to have joint ventures with foreign investors to develop our country whose economy is very active and fast growing.
"So far, we don't have any joint ventures with Malaysian companies but we will welcome any of them to become Bitexco Group's international partners," he told Bernama here.
Vietnam has a population of 80 million and 70 percent of them are of working age.
Hoi said the Bitexco Financial Tower (BFT) on Nguyen Hue Street, the tallest building in Vietnam, offers suitable and secure office space to foreign investors including leading multinational corporations, intending to expand into the country and the region.
"The supply of international-standard office space here is very low and now, BFT hopes to meet this growing demand for grade A facilities," he said.
More than 40 percent of the space in BFT is currently under negotiation and the strong level of interest in the project is epitomised by Regus, the world's largest provider of workplace solutions.
With its inauguration ceremony last night, the 262-metre high 68-storey BFT has now become an architectural icon on the skyline of Ho Chi Minh City and also a symbol of Vietnam's growth.
