Net foreign investment improves in H1

VTV.vn - Foreign investors posted a net buy value of 9.2 trillion VND or 405 million USD in the first half of 2017, beating the record 8 trillion VND or 352 million USD made in the first seven months of 2008.

This was a big improvement compared to the total foreign investors' net sell value of over 297 million USD made in 2016. This is attributed to the volatility of global stock markets, which was caused by investors' concerns over new US policies under the Trump administration and the exiting of Britain from the European Union. Foreign investment on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange focused mainly on the industries of construction and building materials, food and beverage, and mining and resources. Leading sectors such as financial services, banking and energy industries were second choice for foreign investors.
