HÀ NỘI – A Japanese health festival will be held at the Hà Nội-based Aeon Mall Long Biên Trade Centre on March 4-5 to introduce the nation’s medical equipment and services.
Around 60 businesses, which include those that have already invested in Việt Nam and those seeking investment opportunities in the healthcare sector, will showcase health-related products and services such as biomedical equipment, water purifiers, functional food, wheelchairs, blood pressure measuring devices, cosmetics, health check-ups and treatments.
The event, organised by the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO), also includes a special forum that will discuss the secret of good health and high life expectancy among the Japanese. Japan has been known as one of the highest life expectancy in the world.
Hironobu Kitagawa, head representative of JETRO Hà Nội, said Japanese businesses are looking towards Asian markets, including Việt Nam.
Last week, a delegation of Japanese businesses visited HCM City for information on investment opportunities.
“Japan is among the countries that top the life expectancy chart. We want to introduce Japanese products and services that will help people in other countries deal with health problems and maintain good health like Japanese people,” Kitagawa said.
In 2014, JETRO had held this event in three big cities in the region - Yangon in Myanmar, HCM City in Việt Nam and Bangkok in Thailand. – VNS
