HA NOI (VNS)— Viet Nam will create favourable conditions for investors from Osaka, particularly in terms of infrastructure and facilitating new air routes between the two regions.
President Truong Tan Sang made the pledge while receiving Chairman of Osaka Chamber for Commerce and Industry Shigetaka Sato yesterday.
Sang said trade relations between Viet Nam and Osaka had increased rapidly in recent years, accounted for at least 50 per cent of Japan's trade investment in Viet Nam.
He expected Viet Nam's Foreign Direct Investment from Japan to reach $45-50 billion by 2015, adding that Viet Nam would open more industrial zones to attract further FDI from the country and Osaka in particular.
For his part, Sato said it was essential to create ideal conditions for businesses from Viet Nam and Osaka to develop co-operation in the field of healthcare. — VNS
