Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung received a delegation from Japan’s Saijo city, led by Mayor Tamai Toshihisa, in Hanoi on April 27.

At the meeting, the sides informed each other on their respective socio-economic affairs.

Mayor Tamai Toshihisa said his city is home to a large number of small- and medium-sized enterprises and holds strength in the production of machinery and electronic components.

He noted that to boost partnerships with local firms, particularly those in Hanoi, a Saijo working group was established in Vietnam in April 2015.

He expected his current visit will pave the way for future cooperation between his city and Vietnam in general and with Hanoi in particular.

For his part, Chairman Chung stated Japanese investment is always on top in the local sectors of industry, agriculture and tourism, adding that the capital city plans to call for more investment in high-tech farming and biotechnologies.   

Chung said Hanoi wants to step up engagements with Saijo and affirmed to create favourable conditions for Saijo investors in the city.-VNA
