HCM City (VNA) – The Housing Development Commercial Joint Stock Bank (HDBank) has signed a memorandum of understanding with Japan’s Senshu Ikeda Bank to provide investment advice and financial services to the latter’s customers seeking to enter Vietnam.

Senshu Ikeda will offer similar services to HDBank’s customers seeking to set up business in Japan.

They will also organise seminars on investment and other events for each other’s customers and exchange personnel.

In 2014, HDB and Japan’s Hyakugo Bank established a Japan desk to support Japanese companies in Vietnam.

This month, the Vietnamese lender together with Banrai Trading Company organised a business-matching seminar for the Vietnamese and Japanese food industries.-VNA
