VIETNAM PM WOOS INVESTORS AFTER RIOTS

0

HANOI: Vietnam’s prime minister pledged on Thursday to step up economic reforms and prevent a repeat of riots targeting foreign-owned factories, seeking to reassure nervous investors. Nguyen Tan Dung said the mid-May unrest, in which Beijing says four Chinese workers were killed, was “unprecedented and unexpected.” “I can confirm that there will not be any more riots,” he said at a business forum in Hanoi, adding that the government would “ensure safety and security for foreign business and foreigners working, studying or living in Vietnam.” Since China moved an oil rig into waters claimed by Vietnam in early May, relations between the frequently quarrelsome communist neighbors spiraled to their lowest point in decades.
