During the meeting, Phong suggested the two localities promote economic cooperation, especially in the fields where Ehime has potential and HCM City is interested in.
He also called for closer collaboration between Ehime and HCM City in education and sharing management experience.
Phong expressed his belief that the Japanese delegation’s trip to HCM City to explore cooperation and investment opportunities will further develop relations between the city and Ehime.
Nakamura highly valued HCM City’s strong development as well as promising economic cooperation prospects between the city and Ehime.
While briefing the host on the Japanese prefecture’s economic development potential, Nakamura said HCM City in particular and Vietnam in general will be an investment destination for businesses from Ehime in the coming time.
