VinFast looks to manufacture in India

VinFast, the carmaker from Vietnam that has emerged as the third-most valuable carmaker, is planning to set up a manufacturing unit in India. The plant is likely to come up either in Gujarat or Tamil Nadu and could either be for exports or for the Indian market, or both. The company saw its stock rise 700 percent days after it listed on the Nasdaq. It has fallen since then and its present market capitalisation stands at $25.7 billion.

September is likely to see the worst outflows from foreign investors after January 2023. Over the past six months, these funds had pumped in $21 billion into Indian equities, resulting in a 17 percent rise in the Sensex and Nifty. So far, September has seen an outflow of Rs 13,000 crore, and this has been compensated by buying from domestic investors who pumped in Rs 14,000 crore.
