NDO/VNA - The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) wants to promote agricultural partnerships between Vietnam and Japan, with a focus on private sector investment and food value chains.

JICA made the statement at a seminar held in Ho Chi Minh City, on January 26, organised by JICA, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) and the Vietnam Farmer’s Union (VFU).

Officials, businesses, groups and individuals with an interest in the topic attended the event, which discussed creating food value chains in Nghe An province and the current challenges facing the industry.

Besides exchanging ideas on agricultural development, calls for investment from private companies in agriculture were also heard.

The seminar was held on the occasion of the 5th Japan- Vietnam Festival in Ho Chi Minh City.
