Mr. Nawaf Al Zamil: We are very proud of where we have reached after 25 years. I'm very happy with the team we’re having. It has been very successful for us, so we’re very optimistic.

Mr. Nawaf Al Zamil: Of course, we believed in Vietnam 25 years back, and now it’s even better. Because we see the progress, and continue to expanding in Vietnam. Now we’re investing in our factories with more modern machinery to cope up with project requirements. You know projects management are different now, more complicated, and not only in Vietnam, but in the whole Asia Pacific area where we are serving, so we are having plans now to invest, so there is indeed plan for expansion.
Reporter: It means that Zamil Steel believes more in the future development of the company in Vietnam?
Mr. Nawaf Al Zamil: Yes, we have plan for expansion in future, which means we believe more in the country. All government bodies have been very helpful to us and the Government of Vietnam has really helped us throughout this journey. In the beginning we didn't know what to do but now, they’re helping us in every way, and even with our exports they have been very helpful, so looking at the business perspective, Government, how much they have helped to bring the FDI inflows into Vietnam, I think that’s very positive. I consider ourselves as the ambassador connecting Vietnam and the Middle East, so we always tell the Middle East businesses how potential the market is in Vietnam, and how successful we have been there, so we are very optimistic about the future.

Mr. Nawaf Al Zamil: We are the reference example for investment in Vietnam, so whenever investors have plans to come to Vietnam, always remember Zamil Steel. In the 25th anniversary we have the presence of the Saudi Ambassador to Vietnam, and he is willing to support any FDI investors from our country to Vietnam. So as we said, we are always telling our partner businesses about the good experience we have in Vietnam, and we’re optimistic about the future here.
