Can Tho (VNA) – The Mekong Delta city of Can Tho always welcomes and creates favourable conditions for Japanese corporations to land their investment in the locality, Vice Chairman of the city People’s Committee Duong Tan Hien said on June 19.

Hosting a reception for representatives from KATO Group and Wons company, Hien said he hopes that both corporations will establish their representative offices in the city to connect Japanese investments in the priotised sectors of seafood, fruit and healthcare.

Leading officials of the Japanese firms expressed their hope to link Vietnamese and Japanese investment through giving consultations about merger and acquisition in state-owned enterprises, outlining investment plans, and promoting cooperation between Japanese investors and Vietnamese ministries.

They recommended Can Tho to channel focus on media work to lure investment, including developing attractive websites which provide impressive images and trustworthy information about the local business climate.

According to honourable President of the Vietnam-Japan Friendship Association Pham Thanh Van, Can Tho city should have international-standard hospitals to serve foreign investors.

Construction is underway for Vinmec International Hospital, which will be put into use next year. Meanwhile, Japan will help Can Tho General Hospital to set up the Vietnam-Japan clinic to better healthcare service for experts and local people.

With well-developed system of hospitals, schools, and entertainment zones, Can Tho will be an ideal destination for Japanese experts and businesses, he added.-VNA
