President Sang thanks Kansai firms for support

HA NOI (VNS)— State President Truong Tan Sang yesterday hailed Japanese businesses for their support for Viet Nam during his reception of the Chairman of Japan's Kansai Economic Federation Shosuke Mori in Ha Noi.

Sang reserved special praise for Japan's Kansai region, which has forged particularly close ties with Viet Nam in recent years.

"With the economic backing of our Kansai partners and the active efforts made by both sides, our two countries' trade turnover will continue to grow," he said.

The president also expressed his wish for the relationship with the economic federation to be developed further, and suggested that in the future more Vietnamese students study in Kansai and a direct air route be established between the region and Viet Nam.

In response, Mori confirmed that his visit aimed to find new areas of co-operation in celebration of the 40th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two countries.

He said that thanks to the assistance provided by the Vietnamese Party and State, investment from Kansai businesses now accounts for 20 percent of Japan's total investment in Viet Nam.

The business leader suggested the two sides increase their work together in the fields of human resources training and environmental protection.

The Kansai Economic Federation will continue to work closely with Viet Nam's Ministry of Planning and Investment and Ministry of Industry and Trade to further aid business development in the country, he said.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
