HCMC Chairman Nguyen Thanh Phong has said that the city needs to further streamline administration procedures to speed up permission for projects awaiting more investment.

At an investment conference last month, the southern metropolis called for $53.8 billion in FDI for 210 projects with particular focus on transport infrastructure.

Last year HCMC ranked second in FDI attraction behind Hanoi with $5.9 billion, accounting for 16.7 percent of total, according to the Ministry of Planning and Investment.
