Given the complicated development of the Covid-19 pandemic, production - business activities have been affected causing the realized investment capital of foreign investment projects in 2020 to slightly decrease compared to 2019. Specifically, the disbursement of foreign direct investment capital is estimated at 19.98 billion USD, equivalent to 98% over the corresponding period last year.

Many foreign-invested enterprises are gradually recovering, maintaining well their production activities. More importantly, there are still many foreign investors keen on investing in Vietnam.

Statistics from the Ministry of Planning and Investment indicated that nearly 300 foreign enterprises have plans to expand investment in the country, 60 of which have achieved initial results in carrying out their plans.
