VGP - A delegation of Japanese businesses will fly to the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho on November 1 to attend a series of activities to mark the 45th anniversary of Viet Nam-Japan diplomatic ties which run until November 4.

Vice Director of the Viet Nam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) branch in Can Tho Nguyen Phuong Lam said after the three Viet Nam-Japan culture and trade exchanges since 2015, Japanese businesses have increased their investments in the Mekong Delta region. This demonstrates how successful and worthwhile the events are.

More than 100 CEOs of Japanese businesses will fly directly to the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho. This is the first time Can Tho airport will welcome the largest ever number of Japanese entrepreneurs who will come to the Mekong Delta city to seek investment opportunities in Can Tho and the Mekong Delta region as well.

During the first 10 months of this year, Japan businesses have invested in 318 projects in Viet Nam, including 11 projects in the Mekong Delta region.

They have so far poured investments into 3,889 projects with a combined capital of US$55.775 billion including 172 projects in the Mekong Delta worth nearly US$2.2 billion.

Currently, Japan ranks second behind only the Republic of Korea among foreign investors in Viet Nam.
