RIYADH — Prime Minister Phạm Minh Chính received leaders of Aramco group and the Saudi Fund for Development in Riyadh capital of Saudi Arabia on Thursday.

The meetings took place as part of his trip to Saudi Arabia to attend the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) - Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Su妹妹it and visit the country.

Talking to the Vietnamese PM, Executive Vice President of Aramco Yasser M.Mufti expressed his firm’s hope to have a chance to invest in Việt Nam, which is working to build a new petrochemical plant.

He proposed the Vietnamese Government create conditions for Aramco to expand investment in the country, firstly permitting the group’s technical team to come to survey the market.

PM Chính welcomed Aramco’s plan to invest in Việt Nam's oil and gas sector, especially major petrochemical projects, and cooperate in the trading of oil, gas, and petrochemical products such as crude oil, liquefied gas, plastics, and fertiliser.

He called on Aramco to provide conditions for the State-owned Việt Nam Oil and Gas Group (Petrovietnam) participate in supplying oil and gas services in Saudi Arabia, seek large projects to jointly invest in, and assist with training oil and gas manpower.
