The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee and the Economy, Trade and Industry Department of Japan’s Kansai region on June 2 signed a framework agreement on cooperation, under which they will enhance connections in support industry.

The city has assigned its management board of industrial and export processing zones to set up a division in charge of connecting ties with Kansai and providing consultations for its enterprises.
