This would raise the total foreign investment inflows into the country in the first 11 months of this year to $20.25 billion, the ministry said in a report.

Foreign investment pledges, which indicate the size of future inflows, rose 16% in November from a year earlier to $3.1 billion, it said. (Reporting by Khanh Vu; Editing by Martin Petty)
