Vinh Phuc seeks investment from Japan

Hundreds of big Japanese firms attended a seminar in Tokyo on Tuesday to attract investment to Vinh Phuc Province. Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Hoang Thi Thuy Lan said Vinh Phuc has become a destination for major investors from numerous countries. As of 2016, the province had attracted 234 foreign-invested projects worth 3.6 billion USD from 15 countries. Japan ranks third in the number of projects and total investment in Vinh Phuc but is first in terms of capital disbursement.

Yasushi Iwata, Director of the Asia-Pacific Division of the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry said Vietnam, and Vinh Phuc in particular, is a promising destination for Japanese investors. The seminar provided an opportunity for provincial authorities to answer investor's questions and lay the ground work for investment decisions.
