Ba Ria-Vung Tau (VNA) – Sanjo city in Japan’s Niigata Prefecture has agreed to help the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau in human resource training by receiving apprentices from the province to study and work in Sanjo.

Under a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the provincial Department of Industry and Trade and Sanjo city’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry signed on July 20 during a visit by a Sanjo delegation led by Mayor Isato Kunisada, the two sides will share information and build a win-win cooperation framework.

The deal also allows both sides to continue speeding up a joint programme to assist Ba Ria-Vung Tau in developing human resources and promoting the metal support industry, which is funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

Together with the northern port city of Hai Phong , Ba Ria-Vung Tau has been chosen by the Government to become a hub of support industry for metal production. The province is building an industrial park covering 1,000 hectares to host firms in the field.

Over the past years, Sanjo and Ba Ria-Vung Tay have enjoyed sound partnership. Nearly 100 vocational teachers, owners of local mechanical firms and officials in charge of human resources and industry from Ba Ria-Vung Tau have been trained in Sanjo to enhance their knowledge in the metal support industry.-VNA
