TOKYO — The Vietnamese Business Association in Japan convened its congress for the second tenure (2018-20) on May 6, seeking ways to better connect Vietnamese businesses.
Speaking at the event, president of the association in the first tenure, Đinh Ngọc Hải, said after five years of formation and development, the association had gained initial achievements, contributing to connecting the two countries’ enterprises, particularly those from Japan and Việt Nam’s Cần Thơ City and Cà Mau provinces.
However, Vietnamese ambassador to Japan Nguyễn Quốc Cường said the connectivity between Vietnamese enterprises was not strong enough.
He hoped the second-tenure executive board would take more specific and practical measures to better connect Vietnamese enterprises in Japan as well as Vietnamese enterprises and Japanese partners.
Việt Nam-Japan relations were developing strongly, creating space for Vietnamese enterprises to integrate more deeply into the Japanese market, Cường added.
At the congress, a new executive board of the association was selected with 11 members, including one president and four vice-presidents.
Vũ Hoàng Đức, the association’s new chief, committed to helping the association grow further to become a trusted platform linking the two countries’ businesses. — VNS
