DA NANG (Biz Hub) — Chedi Trading Company from Japan plans to invest in an international restaurant centre project and an organic vegetable farm in the central city's Cam Le district.

The company's board chairman, Junji Tabira, said in a meeting with the central city on May 23.

Junji said it would be the first-ever international standard cuisine centre designed as a bungalow on a vegetable farm.

He said the cuisine centre would introduce Japanese foods, Asia and European cooking style for tourists and gastronomes in central Viet Nam, while introducing organic farming onsite as a tourism destination.

He also said local farmers would join the project as food suppliers or employees.

As scheduled, the city has allocated a 6ha farm for the company to develop the project later this year.

The city plans to develop a clean vegetable farm spread over 344ha in the district for providing safe food for the city.

Da Nang has developed 50 farms to provide 10 per cent of the city's consumer demand for vegetables and farm produce.

The project is aimed at increasing investment flows and tourists from Japan to Da Nang city as the number of Japanese tourists trebled as compared to previous years (66,000 tourists in 2015).

The city is home to 160 Japanese investors and 37 representatives with a total investment of US$500 million.

Route Inn Group from Japan is also developing a coastal resort, the first of its kind in Viet Nam, with total investment of $18 million.

The city has already launched a direct air route connecting Da Nang to Narita, Japan in 2014 with seven flights a week, and a direct Da Nang-Osaka route is expected to be put into operation from this August with four flights a week. — VNS
