Vietnam’s economic hub Ho Chi Minh City was the largest recipient of FDI during the period with US$1.1 billion, while the neighbouring province of Binh Duong received US$434 million to take second place.

The third largest recipient of FDI was the south central coastal province of Ninh Thuan, thanks to a US$150 million wind farm project funded by Singapore.

During the January-February period, exports by the foreign-invested sector reached nearly US$24 billion, with oil revenues accounting for 71.3 per cent of Vietnam’s total export turnover.

The sector also imported goods worth US$19.2 billion, meaning it ran a trade surplus of US$4.8 billion for the first two months of 2018.
