NDO/VNA – Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Nguyen Thanh Phong has hailed the investment of Hilton Group in Vietnam, particularly its cooperation with BRG Group.

While hosting a reception for Paul Hutton, Vice President of Operations for Southeast Asia at Hilton Worldwide Group, on January 9, Phong affirmed that the city has given top priority to tourism development, which is billed as a spearheaded economy for the southern hub.

Collaboration commitments between the hotel chain and BRG Group are a vivid illustration of the city’s tourism and hotel development potential, he said, adding that the cooperation will make significant contributions to the tourism and economic development of the city.

Sharing Hilton’s investment activities in Vietnam, Paul Hutton said that the group is running 11 hotel projects in the country, many of which are being operated effectively in Ho Chi Minh City.

He suggested that the city changes certain planning and construction indexes to improve land use efficiency, meeting the country’s requirements for economic integration in the near future.

He expressed his hope that the group would receive further support from the city’s leaders to carry out its projects for the development of the city’s economy, especially the tourism sector.
