The Vietnam Investment Review (4 Sept 2017) has just published figures on the level of Australian investment* in Vietnam up to 20 August 2017.

Currently, Australia has USD1.84 billion (up from USD1.75 on 20 Oct 2016) of registered capital across 411 projects (up from 326 from 20 Oct 2016) at an average of USD4.48 million (down from USD4.57m from 20 Oct 2016).

In terms of bench marking, Australian FDI is 35 per cent of the national FDI average of USD12.87 million per project.

Australia’s USD1.84 billion ranks us 19th for size of total investment. The rankings of the big players remain unchanged:

  1. South Korea: USD56 billion (USD 50 billion as of 20 Oct 2016)
  2. Japan: USD46 billion (USD42 billion as of 20 Oct 2016)
  3. Singapore: USD41 billion (USD38 as of 20 Oct 2016)

* Note: These figures do not include any capital that has entered Vietnam by a third country such as the British Virgin Islands (which is currently ranked 5th with USD22 billion).
