– A workshop, themed "Opportunities for investing in support industry in Vietnam” was organised in Osaka City, Japan on June 23.

The event, jointly organised by local authorities, the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO), the Osaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OCCI), and the Consulate General of Vietnam in Osaka, drew the participation of 120 local enterprises.

Addressing the event, General Consul Tran Duc Binh highlighted Vietnam’s potential for investment, which is spurred by natural conditions, human resources, market scale and a favourable investment climate.

The country’s international and regional integration via its membership of the ASEAN Economic Community and the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement will help expand investment and trade cooperation between Vietnam and Japan, Binh affirmed.

Echoing Binh’s view, representatives from the Japanese Agency for Small- and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) Support Mitsunori Kawahara underlined Vietnam’s potential for Japanese SMEs, particularly in the support industry.

Representatives from the host enterprises expressed hope that the Government of Vietnam will continue promoting administrative procedure reform and creating a favourable climate for Japanese investors in the coming time.

A delegation of 20 Japanese enterprises, led by the Osaka Mayor is scheduled to visit Ho Chi Minh City in September.-VNA
