VGP - A conference was organized on April 18 in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho to connect Japanese partners with the Mekong Delta.

Speaking at the event, Deputy Foreign Minister Bui Thanh Son expressed his hope that through this conference, Japanese investors would understand more about the Mekong Delta in general and Can Tho city in particular so as to have long-term business orientations here. 

He expected that the Japanese side will cooperate with the Vietnamese Government in preventing and addressing negative climate change impacts, helping to turn the Mekong Delta into a strong economic hub of the country.

For his part, Japanese Ambassador to Viet Nam Umeda Kunio said he will actively support the Mekong Delta in attracting Japanese investment, helping them organize events to connect with Japanese businesses in line with the capacity and demand of each locality.

The conference discussed cooperation in developing transport, health care, education-training and climate change adaptation infrastructure; locality-to-locality cooperation in culture, tourism and labor; and cooperation in agricultural investment.

On the occasion, four cooperative agreements were inked. 

The event was among an array of activities marking 45 years of the two countries’ diplomatic ties.
