FDI in Vietnam Real Estate Reaches $48b

Real estate will attract lucrative foreign direct investments in 2015 with the market recovering and Vietnam set to join the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement and other free trade pacts.
The Ministry of Planning and Investment’s Foreign Investment Agency (FIA) announced this week that as of March 20, there were 475 foreign direct investment (FDI) projects in the real estate sector with a combined capital of $48.4 billion, VietnamNews reported.
Singapore took the lead in FDI in Vietnam property with 75 projects and a $10-billion capital, followed by South Korea with about 82 projects worth nearly $7 billion, and British Virgin Islands with 66 projects worth $6.1 billion. Other major investors included Malaysia, Canada, Hong Kong and the United States.
In the real estate sector, HCM City received the maximum FDI with more than 190 projects and a $13.4-billion capital, followed by Ha Noi with 92 projects valued at $8 billion and Ba Ria-Vung Tau with 10 projects worth $6.1 billion. The next were Binh Duong, Quang Nam, Dong Nai and Hai Phong provinces.
According to the FIA, 66.5 percent of all FDI projects in the property sector were wholly foreign investments, 30 percent were joint ventures, and the remainder were joint stock companies and business co-operation contracts.
The agency said many economic policies had been more open this year, with the revision of real estate, investment and enterprise laws, and they had enabled more foreign investors to take part in the domestic realty market.
Disbursement of existing FDI recorded a year-on-year rise of 5 percent to hit $4.2 billion in the first four months of this year, according to the latest report from the Ministry of Planning and Investment’s Foreign Investment Agency.
