HANOI (Reuters): Vietnam saw foreign investment inflows in the first nine months of 2023 rise 2.2% from the same period a year earlier to US$15.91 billion, the government said on Thursday (Sept 28).

Foreign investment pledges - which indicate the size of future disbursements - rose 7.7% from a year earlier to $20.21 billion, the government said in a statement.

Of the pledges, 69.3% would go to manufacturing and processing, while 9.6% are to be invested in real estate businesses, it said.

Singapore, China and Japan were among the largest sources of foreign investment in the January-September period.
