NDO – The Tokyo Metropolitan Small and Medium Enterprise Support Centre in coordination with the Vietnamese Trade Office in Japan, and the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade organised a teleconference on trade promotion between Vietnam and Japan in terms of their mutual support industries on July 7.

As the two countries’ first teleconference in this field, the event aimed to help businesses popularise products and seek cooperative opportunities amid the complexities brought about by COVID-19.

Speaking at the event, Vietnamese Trade Counsellor in Japan Ta Duc Minh emphasised that cooperation between Vietnam and Japan in support industries has yet to matchtheir mutual potential.

The added value of Vietnamese companies remains modest, he said, urging them to further invest in research and development and modern equipment.

After the plenary session, businesses from the two countries will have 6 trading sessions.

It is expected that through this teleconference, Vietnamese businesses and Japanese importers will better understand each other's needs and capabilities, opening new processing and manufacturing cooperative opportunities.
