Chairman of the central city of Da Nang’s People’s Committee Huynh Ngoc Tho held a dialogue with Japanese companies on September 9 to address any arising problems.

At the dialogue, Japanese enterprises raised difficulties in investing in Da Nang, mainly in infrastructure, land, the environment, administrative procedures, enterprise assistance, worker policies and training human resources training.

They also suggested building a competitive business environment in the city.

Tho answered questions raised by Japanese investors and promised to create the most favourable conditions for them and resolve problems quickly.

He said Da Nang defines Japan as one of its important partners, noting that the dialogue will help the city improve its investment and business environment in a bid to lure more investments from Japan.

As of August 2015, Japan was the fourth biggest investor in Da Nang with 89 registered projects worth 378 million USD, accounting for 11 percent of the total investment capital of the entire city.

Japanese companies mainly invested in processing-manufacturing and information-communication technology sectors, creating jobs for 30,000 labourers in the city and neighbouring provinces.

On the occasion, the city established a team focusing on addressing problems facing the Japanese business community.-VNA
