NEW YORK (Vietnam News/Asia News Network): President Nguyễn Xuân Phúc received Arun Savkur, CEO of the US’s Quantum Group on Wednesday (Sept 22) in New York, witnessing the handover of the cooperation agreement between the group and a Vietnamese joint venture.

The joint venture was established between the Kinhbac City Development Holding Corporation (KBC) and the Saigon Telecom Technology Joint Stock Company (SAIGONTEL).

At the reception, Savkur said based on its resources and financial strengths, Quantum is committed to making contribution to Vietnam’s development, initially with a series of projects worth VNĐ20 - 30 billion in total.

Quantum wishes to make large investments across many important fields in Việt Nam and to cooperate with Vietnamese partners to build a healthcare system combining the western high technology and the eastern traditional medicine, the CEO said.

He stated Vietnamese ministries, sectors and localities will create best conditions possible in terms of administrative procedures and business climate for Quantum to soon launch its investment projects.

The State leader highlighted the robust growth of Vietnam – US ties across all spheres and said he believes based on the experience and capacity of and cooperation achievement between Quantum, KB, and SAIGONTEL, the joint venture’s new investment projects will reap further successes in the future
