VGP - Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh calls on Japanese enterprises to expand investment in infrastructure, energy, manufacturing, high-quality agriculture, information technology, smart urban development, finance-banking, innovation and equitization of State-owned enterprises in Viet Nam.
The Vietnamese Government chief made the above call at his meeting with representatives of the Japan Business Federation (KEIDANREN), the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) in Ha Noi on March 7.
Pham spoke highly of effective and substantive contributions of the JICA, JBIC and KEIDANREN in launching large-scale infrastructure and training projects with a view to improving the investment environment and competitiveness in Viet Nam.
The Prime Minister asked JICA and JBIC to discuss and collaborate closely with Viet Nam's relevant agencies to seek measures to further enhance cooperation in the time to come.
He also urged the Viet Nam-Japan Economic Committee and the KEIDANREN to continue joining hands with Vietnamese relevant agencies to strengthen policy dialogue and experience and information sharing.
He expected that these agencies will uphold the bridging role to encourage more Japanese firms to invest in Viet Nam, particularly in fields of supply chain diversification, auxiliary industry, innovation, technology transfer, digital transformation, green transition, circular economy and climate change response.
Viet Nam-Japan relations are at the best stage of development ever, evidenced by high political trusts and strong and comprehensive achievements across sectors, Pham noted.
The Vietnamese Government commits to working together with the business community to facilitate investment activities to bring benefits for all sides, contributing to upgrading Viet Nam-Japan ties to a new height, Pham stressed.
