The Vietnamese Government encourages Japanese businesses to make more investment in animal and crop husbandry, processing agro-forestry-fishery products, and post-harvest preservation, said Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai.

At a reception for Governor of Japanese Wakayama prefecture Yoshinobu Nisaka in Hanoi on March 11, the Deputy Prime Minister spoke highly of the expanding cooperation between the Japanese prefecture and the Vietnamese Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and several Vietnamese provinces over the past time.

He asked the Japanese prefecture to send experts to help Vietnam with fishing, preserving and processing high-quality aquatic products.

Governor Yoshinobu said his prefecture is strong in agriculture and seafood development, adding that his ongoing visit to Vietnam is to discuss cooperation opportunities in the fields with central and northern provinces of Nghe An, Quang Ninh, Khanh Hoa and Binh Dinh.

He expressed his hope that the Vietnamese Government will create all possible conditions for the two sides to reach new cooperation deals in agriculture, tourism, and trade, citing as example the import of agricultural material from Vietnam and the transfer of processing technology and production models.-VNA
