Vietnam is implementing a policy on economic recovery and development during and after the Covid-19 pandemic. Vietnam is creating the most favorable conditions to attract foreign capital and ODA. This is a "golden opportunity" for foreign businesses to invest in Vietnam, especially Japan as Vietnam’s largest ODA donor and the second largest foreign investor in Vietnam.

 

The Vietnamese Prime Minister also emphasized the importance of the cooperative relationship with Japan, in which the most important thing is mutual trust, understanding and respect to overcome difficulties together with the principle of "harmonious benefits, shared risks".

In response to the strong commitment made by the chief of the Vietnamese government, many leading Japanese enterprises did not hesitate to clearly announce their strategy to continue to expand investment in Vietnam in the coming time. Investors affirmed that when listening to the Prime Minister's exchange, they had more confidence and peace of mind to invest in Vietnam.

Specifically, ENEOS Group is interested in Vietnam’s energy development and wants to participate in the process of reducing carbon emissions. Sojitz Group is also interested in projects related to carbon reduction solutions in Vietnam.

Meanwhile, AEON Group is implementing a medium and long-term investment plan in Vietnam and sees Vietnam an equally important market as the main market in Japan, and plans to double its trade centers in Vietnam in the near future.

AEON also plans to list on the Vietnamese stock market and promote the export of Vietnamese goods such as seafood, garments, etc to Japan. Digital transformation in Vietnam is also its interest.

A representative of Fast Retailing Group, which owns Uniqlo fashion brand, said that the group would expand its business in the field of retail, e-commerce in the near future.

These are good signs not only for Vietnam's economic recovery and development in the coming time. Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh said: "After this visit, political trust between the two sides will be raised, opening a new chapter of development and elevating the extensive strategic partnership between Vietnam and Japan.”
