DA NANG — Mitsubishi Motors Viet Nam has inaugurated a new showroom in the central city of Da Nang, its seventh in the central region and 30th in Viet Nam.
The nearly VND20 billion (nearly US$900,000) facility includes a showroom, service centre and accessories and spare parts sale centre.
According to its latest report, Mitsubishi Motors Viet Nam, 82 per cent of which is owned by Mitsubishi Motors, sold 4,600 cars in the first 10 months of 2016.
Its central Viet Nam showrooms are located in Thanh Hoa, Vinh, Nghe An, Gia Lai, Dak Lak, Quang Ngai and two in Da Nang.
In 2015, Da Nang hosted the fourth stage and fifth starting point of the 2,200km Viet Nam-trans Mitsubishi Caravan.
Last year, Hino Motors Viet Nam also debuted a showroom in Da Nang.
Japan is the biggest investor in Da Nang, with 112 projects worth $397 million – 10 per cent of the foreign direct investment (FDI) projects in the city, creating 32,000 jobs.
The city plans to build an industrial park on 134ha for medium-sized and small businesses from Japan.
A direct flight between Osaka and Da Nang will be launched in 2017. The seven direct flights per week to Tokyo have helped promote tourism and investment since their launch in 2014. — VNS
