Japanese businesses are increasingly interested in investing and doing business in Vietnam, said Tsutomu Sakagami, general director of the Japanese company Marubeni Vietnam, who has recently become the president of the Japanese Business Association in HCM City (JBAH).
The new JBAH president delivered the statement during a meeting with Tat Thanh Cang, Vice Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee on May 19.
The JBAH president highly appreciated the city’s great efforts to create favorable conditions for the operations of Japanese businesses in the city. He expressed his hope that JBAH would receive continued assistance from local authorities in activities to accelerate bilateral trade and investment relations.
For his part, Cang congratulated Tsutomu and praised the contribution of JBAH in connecting the two countries’ businesses. He believed that the association would continue to introduce Japanese businesses to the city’s key industries that are calling for foreign investment. They include trade and services, transportation, high-tech agriculture, as well as the food processing and support industries.
Currently, JBAH has 770 members and the number is expected to increase as Japanese companies have been showing more interest in doing business in Vietnam.
JBAH has been joining hands with the municipal People’s Committee to organizes annual round-table conferences to help solving difficulties coped by Japanese companies operating in the city. The conferences also help Japanese and local businesses to find partners.
