Despite not reaching the target of registered capital, one thing is worth noting that 2016 was the first year thatthe disbursement of FDI capital hit nearly $US 16 billion, a record high so far. If the registered capital decreased by 10%, in contrast, the implemented capital increased by 10% compared to 2015.

Meanwhile, expertLuuBich Ho said that there are many complications in 2017, so we should not expect too much on breakthroughs in 2017, and the FDI attraction is also in that context.

"In the current FDI attraction, the number of Companies with 100% foreign capital still accounts for a large proportion, so it needs to increase the number of joint ventures to increase Vietnam’s internal resources.
