“Up to now, we still engage in processing and trading seafood, coffee and other agricultural products in Vietnam,” Dr Choi said.
In 1989, Sunwah opened a representative office in HCMC and started to expand business to the real estate sector. The properties invested by Sunwah in Vietnam include the 22-storey Sunwah Tower in the center area of HCMC and the residential project of Saigon Pearl in Binh Thanh District.
