NDO/VNA – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on February 28 affirmed that the Government is determined to continue implementing strong measures aimed at improving the investment environment, thus further facilitating foreign investors, including those from Japan.

Receiving General Director of the Japanese-invested Aeon Mall Vietnam Iwamura Yasutsugu in Hanoi, the Government leader reiterated that Vietnam takes the successes of the foreign investors as its own.

Vietnam hopes to expand its cooperation with the Aeon group, PM Phuc stressed, expressing his expectation that Vietnam can push up the direct export of its commodities through the group.

The leader asked the Japanese official and the group to continue broadening investment and business in Vietnam, and to open more establishments in the country’s other localities. He also asked Aeon to raise Vietnam’s export revenue to top its current US$500 million.

For his part, the Japanese official expressed his thanks to Vietnam for its support to the group’s operation in the country. Aeon’s decision to broaden its investment and business in Vietnam is of great importance, he said, affirming that the group will further boost operation in the time to come.

He also briefed his host on Aeon’s investment projects in Vietnam. By 2025, the group will operate 25 trade centres in Vietnam with a combined investment of US$2 billion, and it will bring Vietnam’s export revenue to US$1 billion in 2025 from the current US$500 million as the country boasts many products suitable to making the goal achievable, the official added.
