Hoa Binh (VNA) –
A working delegation from Japan’s Yamanashi prefecture led by its Governor Koutarou Nagasaki visited the northern province of Hoa Binh on January 14.

The two sides introduced their respective natural and social conditions as well as potential, strengths, and investment cooperation opportunities.

Koutarou said Hoa Binh shares a lot of similarities with Yamanashi such as proximity to the capital and abundant water resources, especially hot spring sources.

He added that Yamanashi is able to develop power based on its water resources and it has strengths in fruit cultivation, manufacturing industry, mechatronics, jewelry and wine making, and tourism.

The governor hoped the two localities will combine their strengths to gain mutual benefits in economic development.

He said his prefecture will consider investment opportunities in Hoa Binh after the working session.

Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Bui Van Khanh voiced the wish to cooperate with Yamanashi in tourism, agriculture, education, and manufacturing industry.

Hoa Binh province also proposed the Yamanashi Governor consider providing Hoa Binh with vocational training equipment, training support and human resources training to serve labour export to Japan./.
