An important investor

According to Okada Hideyuki, Chairman of the Japan Business Association in Ho Chi Minh City, in the context of a complicated Covid-19 epidemic, the production of components and accessories in the supplying chains is not  responding to the plans of Japanese companies.  Meanwhile, Vietnam has emerged as a nation of early disease control; thus, attracting special attention from Japanese businesses.  This is a great opportunity for Vietnamese industrial parks to be connected with Japanese enterprises in order to attract investment into and develop some localities.  In particular, 15 Japanese enterprises selected by the Government to be offered capital for the program of "supporting the diversification of overseas supplying chains" are all operating in Vietnam.  This support helps businesses continue to expand production activities or invest into new factories.

At recent online workshop of promoting Japanese investments co-held by Osaka Chamber of Commerce and Becamex IDC, representatives of departments and sectors have introduced their competence, potentials, competitive advantages, and policies of luring investing enterprises into industrial parks and clusters of the province. Accordingly, the relation of Binh Duong provincial authority, Becamex IDC and Japanese investors is bonded. 

Mai Hung Dung, permanent Deputy Chairman of Binh Duong provincial People’s Committee informed that Japan is currently on the top of nations and territories of investments into the province.

Japanese enterprises, for the time, have mainly invested into supporting industries that Binh Duong and the whole nation are lack of. Japanese enterprises in the province have all observed laws and been under effective operations with application of modern equipment and technologies friendly to the environment and great care for lives of working people. Binh Duong provincial authority has always prioritize FDI projects of advanced, new, modern and highly value added technologies to stay connected in global supplying chain. Being a province of strong industrial development, Binh Duong province is among the best choice for foreign investors seeking for investments into Vietnam.
