Hanoi (VNA) – Thirty Japanese firms involved in seafood and food industries will gather at two business matching conferences, in the capital on August 30 and in HCM City on September 1.

Vietnam has become a promising market for Japanese food products and the Japanese firms come to the forthcoming events to seek new trade partners, the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) in Viet n am, the events' organiser, said in its statement.

The number of Japanese restaurants in Hanoi and HCM City would increase in the time to come, and this could lead to rising consumption demand for food products, according to JETRO.

In 2015, Viet n am ranked seventh among leading importers of Japanese agricultural, seafood and food products in term of turnover.-VNA
