The Vietnam Investment Summit 2010 in Ho Chi Minh City next week will focus on real estate and infrastructure investment opportunities, but organizers claim it will not be business as usual.
Mavis Ng, marketing executive from the Singapore-based Terrapinn Group, which is organizing the summit, told Thanh Nien Weekly that it will help investors gather "important information on the intricacies of investing" in key areas.
Foreign and Vietnamese investors, as well as local companies, can expect to "get fresh insights on how the government will continue to liberalize Vietnam's investment policies, benefit from insightful focus sessions led by the industry movers and shakers that could further enhance investors' project portfolio," Ng said.
He said summit participants will also be able to get first hand information from industry insiders and experts on the best strategies to capitalize on the huge investment potential in Vietnam, assess investment criteria of foreign developers and project owners, and cultivate new business alliances.
Vietnam has attracted huge amounts of foreign direct investment capital, especially in infrastructure and real estate industries, over the last three years, Ng said.
Given this huge investment potential, the Vietnam Investment Summit 2010 is where investors will "meet and network with developers, asset managers and Vietnamese corporates to uncover Vietnam's investment potential," he added.
