Oil steadied as the International Energy Agency warned the coronavirus vaccine breakthrough won’t quickly revive markets. Futures fluctuated between gains and losses near US$41/barrel. The IEA cut its forecasts for global oil demand this quarter by 1.2m barrels a day as the pandemic continues to pressure consumption, most notably in Europe. (Bloomberg)
Favourable investment environment brings in FDI capital to Dong Nai province
Dong Nai has been among the leading localities in Vietnam in attracting foreign investment over recent years, with local authorities continuing to innovate and create a favourable investment environment. Dong Nai is now home to 32 operating industrial parks and more than 1,500 active FDI projects with a total investment capital of nearly US$31bn. Foreign-invested enterprises contribute an average of US$11bn to the province’s export turnover each year. To become a popular destination among investors, Dong Nai has constantly reformed its administrative procedures, fine-tuned its infrastructure, and trained high-quality human resources. Dong Nai will be home to the much-anticipated Long Thanh International Airport and associated traffic infrastructure within a few years. To put these advantages to best use, it will continue to strengthen reform efforts and create favourable conditions for manufacturing activities while opening more industrial parks and developing infrastructure.
