As part of the 40th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Vietnam and Japan, a three day Vietnam-Japan Economic Co-operation Conference will take place from August 20-23 at the Grand Plaza Hanoi Hotel.
The event will provide an opportunity to develop direct investment links between Vietnamese localities and companies and Japanese investors.
The Ministry of Construction and Embassy of Japan in Vietnam co-hosted event, which will be sponsored by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), is part of a wider series organised by FDI Vivina and Vietnam Real Estate Association.
The event will provide an opportunity for dialogue and investment promotion exchanges between Vietnam and Japan. Besides the main event, there will be a gala dinner and cultural exchange session, field trips, and exhibition of projects seeking Japanese investments.
The exhibition booths will focus on infrastructure, real estate, tourism, construction and supporting industry development.
Along with 150 Japanese delegates, representatives of ten northern and up to five southern provinces, along with more than 100 Vietnamese firms, associations and investors will attend the conference
â€œThe conference is an ideal way of building links between Vietnamese localities and domestic firms with Japanese investors,â€ Doan Xuan Huy, event director of External Relations and Media said. â€œJapanese companies are increasing their investment projects in the wider Southeast Asian market, and Vietnam remains their attractive destination.â€
The participating Vietnamese companies and localities will be assisted by experts and members of the organising committee to determine the effectiveness of their investment attraction plans.
Meanwhile, the conference will also help Japanese firms gain a greater understanding of the preferential policies in Vietnam they are entitled to, and particular advantages of each city or province where they would choose to set up business.
The event will also allow participants to hear about investment case studies from successful Japanese firms operating in Vietnam at present.
