US Bankers Goldman Sachs has put Vietnam in a group of 11 countries with the highest growth rates – stating that Vietnam continues to be a good destination for investors, reported

It’s believed this conclusion, alongside other recent good press for Vietnamese industry will boost investment.

A number of existing foreign investors in Vietnam are putting programmes in place to expand businesses in Vietnam following the post-crisis period. Investors of many projects, which once were delayed by the global economic crisis, have committed to re-start in the first quarter.

After a period of relative inactivity, Nguyen Hoai Nam, general director of Berjaya Vietnam, has revealed that a $930 million project in the Vietnam Finance Centre in District 10 in HCM City will start construction in the first quarter of 2010.

In Ba Ria-Vung Tau in the south, the US investor behind the Saigon Atlantis Hotel project capitalized at 4.1 billion dollar has also committed to starting up in the first quarter after leaders of the province allocated 80 hectares out of a total 295 hectares for the project

However, retailing is the business field that has received the most attention from foreign investors.

Tham Tuck Choy, general director of Parkson Vietnam, said that the business results of Parkson Vietnam in 2009 was the best among Parkshon’s chain with the turnover growth rate of 30 percent per annum. Meanwhile, the figures are just 10-15 percent in Malaysia and China.

“This encouraging result has prompted us to make further investment. The fourth Parkson trade centre in HCM City was opened in late December 2009, which is the sixth one in Vietnam to set up over the last five years.

Meanwhile, domestic investors are also hurrying to prepare for the post-crisis period, and are expecting to cooperate with foreign investors as they arrive.

The Saigon Investment Group (SGI) in 2009 started the construction of the Saigon-Chan May non-tariff Industrial Zone in Thua Thien-Hue province, which covers an area of 650 hectares and kicked off the 100,000 square meter workshop complex in Can Tho City.
