The city applauded the companies’ investment in auxiliary and high-tech industries of Vietnam, he said, hoping the companies will achieve outstanding results in production and business.
"Hanoi will find solutions to provide good conditions for South Korean firms and the city will try to address any issues in compliance with existing laws," Thanh said.
In return, Chairman cum CEO of SEIN I&D Vietnam Kim Jung In appreciated the support of Hanoi's authorities for South Korean companies.
Hanoi is one of the most potential markets for semiconductor production according to a plan for the development of satellite towns, Kim said.
As a semiconductor manufacturer, SEIN I&D Vietnam hopes the city would facilitate the company with preferential policies on investment and high-quality labor so that the Korean firm can develop its microchip manufacturing plant, he added.
To foster the auxiliary industry, SEIN I&D will introduce potential investors from South Korea to Hanoi, he said.
On the same day, Thanh met executives of THT Development Co. Ltd. and Daewoo E&C Vietnam Co. Ltd.

Thanh said local authorities are making adjustments to the construction and development plan of the city until 2030 with a vision of 2050, in which the scope of urban development projects is clearly identified.
"The real estate companies should have a better approach and the property projects must be commensurate with the stature of the city and its cultural values," Thanh said.
