Vietnam also garnered fresh FDI pledges of $13.03 billion in January-November, down 3.9 percent from a year ago, while additional funds injected in existing projects in the same period dropped 23.9 percent to $5.07 billion, the investment ministry said in its monthly report.
The government has projected actual FDI inflows this year to hit between $14.8 billion and $15 billion, up from a record $14.5 billion received in 2015. South Korea remained the biggest investor in Vietnam so far this year, the report said. (Reporting by Mai Nguyen; Editing by Ho Binh Minh and Sunil Nair)
