HANOI — Vietnam received $11.35 billion in foreign direct investment (FDI) in the first eight months of the year, down 5.1% from a year earlier, the Ministry of Planning and Investment said on Wednesday.

FDI has been a key driver of Vietnam’s economic growth.

Companies with investment from foreign firms account for about 70% of the Southeast Asian country’s exports.

FDI pledges — which indicate the size of future FDI disbursements — dropped 13.7% from a year earlier to $19.54 billion, the ministry said in a statement.

Of the pledges, 47.7% are due to be invested in manufacturing and processing, while 20.6% target gas, water and electricity distribution, it said.

Singapore was the top source of FDI pledges in the period, followed by South Korea and China.

    People with high intuition are not liked very much, they are secretly admired, but most of the time they are not loved because they do not come to their job, they are also distant to those around them because they know the facts, life for these people is extra difficult and tiring.
