HA NOI (VNS) — Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has asked the Mekong-Japan Economic Co-operation Committee to help bring more Japanese investment to the Mekong Delta.
The PM made the appeal during a meeting in Ha Noi yesterday with Watanabe Kohei, president of the Mekong-Japan Economic Co-operation Committee, who is leading a delegation from the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI).
He said Japan remained Viet Nam's biggest investor and Official Development Assistance (ODA) donor, adding that Japanese ODA has positively contributed to Viet Nam's socio-economic development.
PM Dung said that there was still room for the two sides to expand co-operation in economics, trade and investment.
Kohei said the delegation was visiting Viet Nam to talk with the Ministry of Planning and Investment and some agencies on how to further economic, trade and investment ties.
He said many business people accompanied him seeking chances to invest in Viet Nam, especially in support industry, high-tech, information technology, energy, agriculture and the environment. — VNS
