Investment Opportunities In Phu My Hung City Center
Vietnam join Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP)

So, the opportunities to attract FDI and FII from TPP member countries are enormous. Moreover, as Vietnam continues to enjoy economic growth, the need for houses is growing. And with the enactment of the Revised Housing Act in July 2015, the restrictions on real estate purchases by foreigners have been eased, which is expected to lead to further growth in the housing market. TPP is a good signal and chance for large and significant projects like Phu My Hung City Center to attract more foreign human and financial resources.
