HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Phạm Minh Chính late on Tuesday met with leaders of major Japanese corporations as part of his official visit to Japan.

They are corporations that have invested in Việt Nam in the fields of energy, textile, retail trade, consumption, and infrastructure development.

The Vietnamese PM spoke to chairmen and chief executive officers of ENEOS Group, AEON Group, Fast Retailing Co. Ltd, Marubeni Corporation, Mitsui & Co. Ltd, Mitsui Oil Exploration Co. Ltd (MOECO), Sojitz Corporation, and the Mitsui Seafood Processing Company.

He thanked the conglomerates for their work in Việt Nam and congratulated them on their business success in the country, and expressed his approval of their plans to expand investment in the fields of green energy, clean energy, renewable energy, digital transformation, e-commerce, and sustainable development.

He asked the corporations to support Việt Nam financially to train and improve the capability of Vietnamese staff to meet international standards, to share their management experiences, and to export made-in-Việt Nam products to major international markets.

The Government leader stressed that as Việt Nam is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic in a flexible manner and aiming for socio-economic recovery, the Vietnamese Government will create a healthy investment environment for businesses and corporations in the country.

It will also ask ministries, sectors and localities to make it a priority to solve problems and challenges pointed out by businesses in accordance with Việt Nam’s laws and regulations, he said.

Wherever there is a problem, it must be solved, PM Chính added. “If the authorities don’t solve problems that are within their authorisation, businesses can report it directly to the Prime Minister,” he said.

Leaders of corporations said they highly valued the investment and business environment in Việt Nam.

They thanked the Vietnamese Government and localities for their support, saying Việt Nam is a strategic, important market that they would like to maintain and expand long-term investments in several fields. VNS
