Foreign investment continues to be the main driving force behind Vietnam’s advancing economy. Since the Government’s introduction of investment reforms, the Doi Moi policy, in 1986, Vietnam’s economy has continued its rising trend. The current investment regime in Vietnam came into effect on 1 July 2015 and is comprised of a Law on Enterprises (“LOE”) and a Law on Investment (“LOI”) which laws regulate both domestic and foreign investors, for the establishment and operation of corporations and investment in projects.
In 2015, the total registered foreign invested capital was US$22.797 billion with an increase of 12.5% year-on-year.
