FDI into Vietnam will recover after COVID-19: JETRO Chief
VIR
FDI inflows into Vietnam will soon bounce back once the COVID-19 pandemic is brought under control, Chief Representative of the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) in Hanoi Takeo Nakajima said on September 9. FDI into Vietnam has always enjoyed constant increases, he said, and even though investment has now slowed due to COVID-19 it will recover in the post-pandemic period. The Vietnamese Government has introduced numerous incentives and created the conditions necessary for foreign companies, including those from Japan, to invest in the country, he explained.
HCMC requests tax incentives for Samsung subsidiary
VnExpress
HCMC has proposed that a subsidiary of Samsung be defined as an export processing enterprise to enjoy zero import and export duties. The city said in a recent proposal to Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc that switching the label of TV screen producer Samsung Electronics HCMC CE Complex (SEHC) from a manufacturing enterprise to an export processing one will fulfill the city’s commitment to create a favorable investment environment for the South Korean conglomerate. This will place Vietnam as an export base for Samsung to the global market and in turn benefit local suppliers to the South Korean giant, it said.

Vietnamnews
Wholesale markets in HCMC are facing a serious crisis due to the second COVID-19 outbreak. District 1’s Ben Thanh Market, one of the city’s oldest markets, is seeing only dozens of visitors on weekends while the previous number was several thousands. Most of the 3,000 stalls, offering food, garments, footwear and handcrafts, have closed. Shops selling Vietnamese handicrafts and food like fried seafood, favoured by both foreign and local visitors, have been closed since March.
Hanoi tightens management over condotels, officetels, resort villas
VIR
The Hanoi People's Committee recently issued a written request to tighten the management of the investment, construction and business of condotels, tourist villas and officetels. The committee assigned departments, branches and local authorities to strictly implement the Prime Minister's Directive No 5 dated March 1 last year on enhancing the reorganisation of construction and urban planning and development management. The municipal Department of Construction was assigned to control and manage construction works, appraisal of basic and construction design, construction activities to ensure functional use, other criteria consistent with the approved planning; detect, prevent and promptly handle mistakes in project execution by investors.

Vietnamplus
Vietnam’s first automaker, VinFast, inked an agreement on September 9 to purchase the Lang Lang proving ground in the Australian state of Victoria; the latest move in its development strategy to become a global brand. GM Holden’s Lang Lang proving ground is among the oldest yet most modern in the world.

Vietnam might become largest manufacturing facility of Samsung
VIR
Samsung Electronics will close its sole Chinese TV factory in November and shift part of its operations to Vietnam while recategorising its factory in HCMC as an export processing enterprise. Moving the factory to Vietnam, Mexico, and elsewhere is part of a greater trend of businesses shifting supply chains away from China. According to Nikkei Asian Review, Samsung has been losing market share in China due to the rising quality of local competition as well as boycotts triggered by Seoul's decision in 2016 to deploy a US-developed missile shield over Beijing's objections. Labour costs also have been rising in China.
