Hanoi (VNA) – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has
assured Governor of Japan’s Kanagawa prefecture Kuroiwa Yuji that the
Vietnamese government is stepping up the improvement of the domestic business
climate.

During a reception in Hanoi on July 14, the PM expressed his
delight at the fact that several Kanagawa firms have taken initial steps to do
business in Vietnam, adding a recent survey by the Japan External Trade Organisation
(JETRO) has indicated that the majority of Japanese enterprises are interested
in expanding their operations in Vietnam.

He asked for further efforts to create a new Japanese
investment wave in Vietnam towards turning Japan into the largest source of
foreign direct investment in the country.

The host hailed Kanagawa prefecture’s initiative to promote
medical ties with Vietnam in order to improve health care for locals, and
wished that the two sides would enhance collaboration in labour and tourism by
receiving more Vietnamese trainees and popularizing the two countries’ images.

Yuji, for his part, said he is accompanied by 17 local
businesses during the visit. Via seminars and exchanges, two of them have
decided to invest in Vietnam while four others expressed their interest and
readiness for ventures in the country. Four Vietnamese companies also planned
to operate in the prefecture.

He informed the host that the delegation also held a working
session with the Health Ministry on nutrition in health care and improving
longevity and life quality.

The guest expressed hope that the prefecture could cooperate
with Vietnam in the field, including offering medical tours.

He expected a list of Vietnamese information technology firms working in Japan be
announced soon, noting that Kanagawa prefecture commits to offering all
possible support to them.-VNA
