HA NAM (VNS)— The head of Osaka's Industrial Development Agency has described co-operation between Japanese firms and Vietnamese businesses as ‘indispensible'.
Kyoko Hirose made the statement during a working session with northern Ha Nam Province's People's Committee on Tuesday, emphasising the links between small to medium enterprises in the Japanese prefecture and local companies.
Hirose said she was being accompanied by a business delegation with all members eager to explore investment opportunities in Viet Nam.
She praised the policies implemented by provincial leaders which has seen a steady increase in Japanese investment and up to 40 enterprises basing operations in the province.
After visiting Japanese businesses in Ha Nam's Dong Van 1 and Dong Van 2 industrial zones, Kyoko announced her company, Hirose MFG, will base a facility in the province in addition to existing operations in HCM City.
The province has a strong history of providing incentives to attract foreign investment, particularly from Japan. It also intends to develop an exclusive Japanese industrial zone.-VNS
