Speaking at the meeting, Deputy Minister Tran Duy Dong highly appreciated economic organizations and Japanese enterprises that have invested in Vietnam in a serious and methodical manner with a high sense of responsibility. They have made big contributions to the socio-economic development of Vietnam and social security.

Recently, the Ministry of Planning and Investment has cooperated with the Embassy of Japan in Vietnam and Japanese economic organizations, including JICA and JETRO to organize virtual and face-to-face conferences on direct investment promotion to provide information on new policies, exchanging and resolving petitions of Japanese businesses, creating a favorable environment for Japanese businesses to invest or expand investment in Vietnam.

Deputy Minister Tran Duy Dong welcomed and highly appreciated JICA's support to the Ministry of Planning and Investment in sending experts to work in the departments of the Ministry, promoting the improvement of the investment environment and the competitiveness of Vietnamese enterprises as well as enhancing Vietnam's reputation in the international arena.

The signing of the Memorandum of Understanding between the departments of the Ministry of Planning and Investment and Japanese organizations has further strengthened the close cooperation relationship between the two sides, laying the foundation for close cooperation between the Ministry and the organizations in order to facilitate and promote specific cooperation in many important fields such as foreign investment attraction and innovation, increasing the enterprise qualification and improving the investment environment positively and effectively.

Deputy Minister Tran Duy Dong also highly valuated the drafting of Guide book of 63 provinces in Vietnam. This is an effective tool to provide information to each local business in Japan, where there is little access to information about Vietnam. The Ministry of Planning and Investment hopes that JICA and JETRO have more publications and practical activities in order to strengthen investment cooperation between Vietnam and Japan./.
