Mr. Phuc congratulated MUFG Bank on its success in Vietnam as a key partner and strategic shareholder of the Vietnam Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Industry and Trade (Vietinbank).

He highlighted the progress of the Vietnam-Japan strategic partnership in finance and banking, and said he hopes Japanese companies will invest more in Vietnam and become Vietnam's top foreign investor.

Mr. Mike said he is pleased at the cooperation between MUFG Bank and Vietinbank over the past 5 years which has led to an increase in the number of MUFG's Japanese customers investing in Vietnam.

He underlined the need for more investment promotion conferences in Japan.
