The Vietnamese Government always listens to and creates the best possible conditions for foreign enterprises and investors to clear hurdles, set up a new normal environment, and recover their production and businesses at the earliest possible, under the motto of preventing disruption to production and supply chains and ensuring smooth circulation of goods across the country, stated Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang.

At the ministry's regular conference held virtually on October 21, Hang said with COVID-19 prevention and control measures implemented in the past time, the pandemic situation in Vietnam is gradually being controlled and the country is step by step transitioning to a new normal.

She noted that the Government has issued Resolution No. 128/NQ-CP on temporary regulations for safe, flexible adaptation to and effective control of COVID-19 to bring the entire country into the new normal as soon as possible within 2021, unite anti-epidemic policies nationwide, and break the freeze in socio-economic activities.

The Government is also taking drastic measures to contain and repel the pandemic, with a special working group set up to deal with problems and difficulties facing businesses, and many resolutions and policies promulgated in support of firms, cooperatives and business societies.

The Government has requested that localities issue no more additional regulations and remove inappropriate ones, Hang underscored.

The spokesperson informed that this year to September 20, Vietnam had attracted US$22.15 billion in foreign investment, up 4.1% over the same period last year. Of the sum, US$12.5 billion were registered for 1,200 new FDI projects, down 3.78% in the number of projects but up 20.6% in capital on-year.

The result has confirmed the confidence of foreign investors in Vietnam’s business climate, she concluded.
