Led by Sakai City’s deputy mayor Hazama Emiko, the firms will seek opportunities for trade, finance, investment and hi-tech co-operation with Vietnamese partners.

It is part of plans to further boost cooperation between Sakai City and the Vietnamese Consulate General in Osaka.

At a seminar held in Osaka early this week, the Vietnamese Consulate General updated 40 Japanese business representatives from small- and medium sized enterprises on economic affairs, incentives for foreign investors and potential for cooperation in the support industry between Viet Nam and Japan.

Hazama Emiko said the city gives priority to businesses that are strong in manufacturing, mechanical engineering and industrial production, which want to expand investment in Viet Nam.

With more than 840,000 people, Sakai is the second largest city in Osaka prefecture and has collaborated with Vietnamese partners in many economic, trade and investment cooperation programmes over the past years. — VNS
