President hails GE plans for VN

Viet Nam welcomes the US General Electric (GE) Group’s plan to expand its investments in energy, aviation, and medical equipment in Viet Nam, President Tran Dai Quang said the day before yesterday.

These are sectors in need of foreign investment, he told GE Chairman Jeffrey Immelt.

The President praised GE’s operations in Viet Nam, saying the group has made practical contributions to economic, trade and investment co-operation between Viet Nam and the US, boosting bilateral comprehensive partnership.

He mentioned US President Donald Trump affirmation that he would work to boost economic, trade and security co-operation with Viet Nam as also co-ordinate on regional and international issues of mutual concern.

Trump also said he would consider attending the 25th APEC Summit in Viet Nam, Quang noted.

He said APEC 2017 presented opportunities for governments and enterprises to strengthen co-operation, suggesting that GE and other US firms continue investing in Vit Nam and pushing the US Government to strengthen win-win economic and trade relations.

Quang also called on US businesses to support Viet Nam in hosting the APEC 2017, including funding the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC 2017).

He appreciated the letter that GE sent to US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, calling on him and the US President to attend APEC Viet Nam 2017.

Immelt informed his host that GE has invested in a factory producing wind and steam turbines to supply the group’s subsidiaries in Viet Nam and other countries.
