In response, the EDCF leader said the fund will push for the provision of preferential loans for Vietnamese and RoK firms to carry out public-private partnership projects in Vietnam.

At the meeting with President of the RoK-Vietnam Friendship Association Choi Young-joo, Deputy PM Dung hailed the organisation’s contributions to the countries’ friendship and cooperation, as well as its efficient partnership with the Vietnam-RoK Friendship Association.

He urged Choi Young-joo, who is also a successful entrepreneur in Vietnam, to encourage RoK firms to seek investment opportunities in agriculture and new spheres of potential in Vietnam.

Dung also proposed that the association continue to support the Vietnamese community in the RoK, and particularly Vietnamese brides.

At the reception for leaders of Hyundai Motor, Lotte, CJ, and Hyosung, the Vietnamese Deputy PM affirmed that the Vietnamese Government will further improve the business climate and create optimal conditions for foreign investors, including those from the RoK.

Dung expressed his hope that RoK businesses will expand investment in fields that Vietnam has demand for and that the RoK boasts strength in, thus balancing trade relations.

The RoK firms appreciated the Vietnamese Government’s efforts to improve the investment environment and vowed to boost investment in Vietnam in the coming time, notably in infrastructure development, logistics, manufacturing, automobile, agriculture and food processing, and biotechnology.
