HCMC – The International Finance Corporation (IFC) has pledged nearly US$1.9 billion of investment in new projects in Vietnam in the fiscal year 2023, with US$520 million earmarked for long-term investment. The IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, highlighted Vietnam as one of the top five countries in the Asia-Pacific region to receive substantial long-term investment capital for the fiscal year ending June 30.
