The Investment Support Forum for overseas Vietnamese (Invesfov) was launched on Jan. 14 for the Vietnamese community both in the homeland and foreign countries to turn remittances into a profitable investment source for overseas citizens.

According to the Association for Liaison with Overseas Vietnamese (ALOV), about 5.3 million Vietnamese are living in more than 130 countries and territories. They are an essential and inseparable part of the nation.

Overseas citizens have contributed considerable financial and intellectual resources to the homeland's development in all fields.

According to the World Bank, since 2017 Vietnam has been in the top 10 developing countries attracting the highest amount of remittances, despite the pandemic in the last two years.

The total amount of remittance sent to Vietnam reached USD17.6 billion in 2020. The figure is estimated to reach USD18.1 billion in 2021.

Ambassador Nguyen Phu Binh, former Ddeputy minister of foreign affairs, and chairman of ALOV, said ALOV was an "extended arm" of State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in supporting the overseas community to stabilize their lives and stay close to the homelan.

After a long period of research, ALOV decided to establish Invesfov, which demonstrates the determination to realize Politburo's Conclusion No. 12 in encouraging overseas people to closely accompany the homeland and creating conditions for them to contribute to national development.
