Moreover, Vietnam has been in the process of global integration through its participation in a number of free trade agreements. This is an opportunity for foreign investors to explore and expand business operations in Vietnam, stated Phuc.
In a meeting with Youn Chul Kim, chairman of South Korea-based Hanwha Techwin, Phuc welcomed the corporation's plan to expand business activities in Vietnam, especially in high-technology fields.
