FDI pledges, which indicate the size of future FDI disbursements, including newly registered capital, further investment in existing projects and stake acquisition, fell 5.4% year-on-year to $22.4 billion.

Of the pledges, 57.5% would go to manufacturing and processing.

Singapore was the top source of FDI pledges in the period with $5.34 billion, followed by Japan ($4.2 billion) and South Korea ($3.9 billion).

Vietnam now has 36,000 active FDI projects with a total investment of $435 billion.

EuroCham chairman Alain Cany said recently that export-oriented manufacturing and inbound foreign direct investment are driving Vietnam's economic growth, and considering Vietnam's high-quality and affordable labor offerings, it's no surprise that foreign investors want to move manufacturing operations here.

"While global uncertainty persists, Vietnam's prospects are reassuring," he said, adding that EuroCham-member LEGO is investing $1 billion in Binh Duong to build its forward-looking first factory in Vietnam and its second in Asia, while Apple supplier Pegatron now planning to invest up to $1 billion here.

Over 55% of Japanese companies want to expand their business in Vietnam in this and next year, the highest among ASEAN countries, according to a survey released earlier this year by Japan External Trade Organization.
