Foreign direct investment in Vietnam:
BBC interview with Nicolas Audier
In an interview with the BBC, Mr. Nicolas Audier, member of the Executive Committee of EuroCham in Vietnam and managing partner of Audier & Partners, discussed foreign direct investment (“FDI”) in Vietnam. In the context of reduced FDI projects in the first quarter of 2014, Mr. Audier, on behalf of EuroCham, addressed the question why foreign investors are reluctant to invest in Vietnam, particularly in large-scale projects. While pointing out some key issues for the current investment climate in Vietnam, he also highlighted several positive developments, which may help to boost FDI in the foreseeable future.
