The economy of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam has been booming with very positive results, making it a great investment hotspot especially for foreign investors. Billions of dollars have been poured in from overseas renowned enterprises to result in a promising GDP growth of 6.68% year-on-year in the fourth quarter of 2016†. The government, on the other hand, also helps boost the economic upturn with various infrastructure developments like the new airport terminal by Year 2025, the upcoming Metro Lines (MRT) by Year 2020, and the transformation of Thu Thiem into the “West Kowloon” / “Pudong” of HCMC etc., all will draw an influx of income to the flourishing city. Moreover, with Vietnam’s new residential housing law implemented on 1st July 2015 allows foreigners to buy properties in the country for a 50-year leasehold with renewal possibility upon expiration, the promising city has secured itself in the property market with an outlook for lucrative return. We invite you to join our seminar to find out more about HCMC, the new housing law, as well as the full potential the vibrant city possesses.

Diamond Island—the first and only resort marina in HCMC developed by Kusto Home will be launched in Hong Kong during our event.
