He affirmed that the Vietnamese Government will persistently follow its dual goals of containing the pandemic and boosting economic development, and spare no efforts to better investment and business environment, creating favourable conditions for foreign firms to land investment in the country.

The diplomatic representatives said more US, RoK and Indian firms are keen on investing in Vietnam and will come to seek cooperation opportunities as soon as international commercial fights are resumed.
