Japan, Singapore and South Korea are three of the biggest foreign investors in Vietnam. While the Japanese are well known for the portfolio investments in Vietnamese businesses (Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ holds a 20 percent stake in VietinBank, Mizuho holds a 15 percent stake in Vietcombank and ANA a 8.7 percent stake in Vietnam Airlines), Singapore and South Korea are known for direct investment projects. These include Samsung’s electronics and smartphone manufacturing projects and the five VSIP industrial zones developed by Sembcorp.
