BA RIA - VUNG TAU (VNS)— A business delegation from Kobe, Japan visited the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau yesterday to seek business and investment opportunities.
Members of the Kobe delegation specialise in fishery and seafood processing, automobiles, electronics and telecommunications, auditing and accounting and IT.
During their visit, they sought investment opportunities in seaports, logistics and support industries in the province.
Ho Van Nien, deputy chairman of Ba Ria-Vung Tau People's Committee, said the province had been focusing on the development of ports and logistics services and the support industry.
Nien said that Japanese language courses have been offered in senior high schools in the province since the 2012-13 school year.
The province has also signed a business cooperation agreement with Kawasaki Province of Japan. A Kawasaki-style industrial park is now under construction to attract Japanese investors.
The Japanese delegation was especially interested in infrastructure and human resource development in the province's districts of Tan Thanh and Chau Doc, where there are Japanese investment projects. — VNS
