Vietnam has accused China of seeking to buy former President Ho Chi Minh’s property empire, a move that could complicate efforts to sell the country’s vast assets.
The state-run Xinhua News Agency said Friday that Chinese officials visited the property at Ho Chi’s former home in the southern city of Ho Chi Nha, in the western province of Hue, on Sunday.
The news agency said that officials did not comment on whether the visit was in coordination with the government of Vietnam or whether the Chinese delegation had been accompanied by government representatives.
Vietnam’s finance ministry said in a statement that it has asked the Vietnam Securities and Exchange Commission (VietcOSEC) to investigate the matter.
The agency said the Vietnamese government has «high confidence» in the fact that China will be able to sell Ho Chi-minh’s assets, which include more than $8 billion in property and interests in other assets, including casinos and restaurants, to Vietnam.
The VXE, the state-owned state-controlled real estate agency, said it had issued a notice to Ho Chi for a public information event in Ho Chinam to mark the occasion.
Ho Chi Minnh’s daughter, My Hanoi, was the countrys first female president from 1992 to 1997, when she was elected in a landslide.
Her son, Nguyen Van Thieu, was elected president in 2004, following her death.
The elder Ho Chi was assassinated in 2009.VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
