Local and foreign scientists and businesspeople are gathering at an exhibition on Japanese technology and investment (Techno Japan 2013) in Hanoi from December 16-18.

The event creates a good chance for Japanese businesses to introduce their latest scientific and technological achievements in information, energy, space, biology and environment, as well as study Vietnam’s investment policies, said Minister of Science and Technology Nguyen Quan.

Along with Techno Japan 2013, the third international exhibition on security and safety is being held in the capital to help local businesses enhance their capacity in the field for sustainable economic development, especially in the light of global integration.

A number of workshops related to the field will take place during the two exhibitions, helping businesses seek partners and investment opportunities.

Jointly organised by the National Agency for Science and Information Technology under the Ministry of Science and Technology, and the General Department of Logistics and Technology under the Ministry of Public Security, the two exhibitions are part of activities to mark the 40 th anniversary of Vietnam-Japan diplomatic ties.-VNA
