On March 3 and 4, a delegation of Japanese enterprises, representatives of the Japan External Trade Organization, and the Embassy of Japan in Vietnam visited the Nghi Son Economic Zone and other industrial parks in Quang Xuong and Tho Xuan to implement fieldwork.
They visited the Nghi Son 2 thermal power plant, Anh Phat Industrial Park, and logistics warehouses, as well as the Sun Beauty Onsen resort complex.
Representatives of enterprises stated that Thanh Hoa would be suitable for their projects thanks to its convenient position for transport, technical infrastructure, and numerous incentive policies.
Standing vice chairman of Thanh Hoa People's Committee Nguyen Van Thi said that Japan is the leading partner of Thanh Hoa in terms of investment and trade.
“The two parties regularly organise business trips for high-level delegations to carry out investment promotion activities and events to promote the cooperation in trade and tourism. At present, the province and Oyabe city are considering signing a friendship agreement,” Thi said.
