HA NOI (VNS) — Investors from Saitama prefecture, Japan, think highly of Viet Nam's business climate and consider the country a prime investment opportunity in Southeast Asia, according to a survey conducted by the Foreign Investment Agency (FIA) under the Ministry of Planning and Investment.
The number of investors from the prefecture has increased in recent years, with 62 businesses operating in Viet Nam so far, FIA Deputy Director Nguyen Thi Bich Ngoc said in a talk with Saitama enterprises in Ha Noi on Tuesday.
She pledged to undertake maximum efforts to attract more investors, suggesting relevant bodies support them by increasing investment advisory services, collecting feedback and, more importantly, upgrading infrastructure as well as enhancing the business environment.
Ueda Kiyoshi, Governor of Saitama prefecture, said that he would continue to encourage businesses in his locality to invest in Viet Nam, particularly those in the fields of manufacturing, recycling and construction, via the implementation of promotional campaigns in Japan. — VNS
