Vietnam attractive to Indian investors

Viet Nam continues to be an attractive investment destination for Indian companies, Sanjay Kirloskar, chairman and managing director of Kirloskar Brothers Limited, told a conference yesterday in Ha Noi.

Indian companies run 132 projects, worth a combined of US$1.07 billion in Viet Nam, ranking 27th among foreign investors in the country, he said, adding that the majority of Indian investment came in energy, mineral exploration, agro-processing, IT and auto components.

India is one of Viet Nam’s top 10 trading partners, with two-way trade reaching $5.1 billion in 2015 and $2.9 billion in the past seven months of this year.

These figures are encouraging. But, in order to eliminate trade barriers between the two countries there are issues that must be addressed, such as infrastructure, trade facilitation, expansion of the trilateral highway – which currently includes only India, Myanmar, and Thailand, as well as reducing transaction costs, interconnectivity of goods and labour markets, he said.

However, the chairman believes that bilateral economic relations will reach greater heights in the future.

Besides implementing two projects in Viet Nam, Sanjay hoped to expand his company’s investment in the country and introduce advanced technology in pump manufacturing to contribute to reducing flooding and drought in the country’s provinces and cities, especially in HCM City and the Cửu Long (Mekong) Delta.

Meanwhile, Naushad Forbes, the Confederation of Indian Industry president, said Indian firms at the conference wanted to find investment opportunities in Viet Nam, especially in energy, agriculture, finance, oil and gas, healthcare, information technology and education.

In return, he called for Vietnamese businesses to come to India to seek opportunities.

Naushad, who also chairs Forbes Marshall, an engineering and energy conservation solutions provider, lauded Viet Nam’s investment environment, saying that his company wanted to invest here.

In his speech at the event, vice chairman of the Viet Nam Chamber of Commerce and Industry Hoàng Quang Phong agreed that the two governments should pay a greater attention to accelerating bilateral relations.

Despite several obstacles such as geographic distance, cultural differences and customers’ taste and insufficient information about each other’s market, Phòng said he believed that trade and investment ties would further develop thanks to supports from the two governments and the efforts of the two business communities. – VNS

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
