At the meeting, Ambassador Dato' Tan Yang Thai highlighted Malaysia's target of reaching a total registered investment capital of US$18 billion in Viet Nam by 2025 and several successful projects by Malaysian investors in Ha Noi.

The Malaysian diplomat hoped that Malaysia's cooperation and investment in Ha Noi would continue at a positive pace, with valuable support from the local government.

"Viet Nam, in general, and Ha Noi, in particular, have a lot of potentials that Malaysian banks are very interested in and have investment plans," he added.

The Ambassador welcomed the increasing number of flights between Malaysia and Ha Noi and looked forward to more promotional activities to boost the flow of tourists, which is expected to reach 600,000 visitors by 2024, up from about 500,000 last year.

The ambassador also revealed that a delegation from the Chief Minister of the state of Penang will visit Hanoi in early October 2024.

In reply, Mayor Tran Sy Thanh reiterated the city's facilitation of Malaysian companies' investment.

The Ha Noi mayor also confirmed the city government's willingness to support the upcoming visit by Penang leaders.

On the occasion, Thanh invited the Malaysian ambassador and the embassy in Hanoi to participate in activities marking the 70th anniversary of the city's liberation, which is scheduled for October of this year./.
