Vietnam welcomes new FDI inflows from overseas
Foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows in Vietnam are set to record strong growth as the world moves past the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic, with plenty of investment coming from overseas Vietnamese, according to insiders. According to data published by the Ministry of Planning and Investment, as of October, overseas Vietnamese from 27 countries worldwide have injected money into 362 local FDI projects, with a total registered capital of US$1.6bn. Of the investment, overseas Vietnamese in the United States have made investments into 18 projects capitalized at US$105.8m (accounting for 22.38% of the number of projects and 6.6% of OVs’ investment capital in the country), followed by investment from Vietnamese expats from France, Australia, China, and Germany. The majority of FDI projects focus on the processing and manufacturing industry, including 143 projects with capital of US$725.14m, trailed by the real estate, accommodation services, and construction sectors. At present, 42 out of 63 localities nationwide have attracted the investment capital source, with Hanoi luring 79 projects valued at US$476.8m, followed by Long An, Binh Thuan, Hai Phong, and Dong Nai. Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Tran Duy Dong affirmed that the Party and State have deployed a range of policies in an effort to attract a greater number of overseas Vietnamese to invest in the country. Most notably, according to the Investment Law, foreigners are able to invest in the nation in the form of FDI capital contribution, or through other methods such as purchasing shares or business cooperation contracts. Furthermore, the Law on Housing has allowed overseas Vietnamese to purchase homes and other assets legally in the nation, therefore creating the optimal conditions for Vietnamese expatriates to invest and contribute locally.

SHB likely to be added in V.N.M ETF
MVIS Vietnam Index: SHB to move in
For V.N.M ETF rebalancing, SHB is likely to be added into V.N.M ETF’s portfolio, as it met all the MVIS Vietnam Index requirements and fell into top 85% of the free-float market capitalization of the investable universe qualified for selection.
We expect the country weight of Vietnam to stay at 67% of the index with the total number of Vietnam stocks at 16.
By this change, we estimate V.N.M ETF will buy about 22m SHB shares in this review, equivalent to 4% of V.N.M ETF’s NAV.
FTSE Vietnam Index: No change
Based on data as at 26 Nov 2020, we estimate FTSE VN portfolio has no change in this review.
PDR passed the liquidity criteria in this review, but PDR needs to pass the liquidity rule for two consecutive reviews before being a constituent of FTSE VN ETF again as it was removed from FTSE VN in 2Q20 review.
