Speaking with the Vietnamese Ambassador to Japan Nguyen Quoc Cuong at a recent meeting, the governor pledged to continue supporting Vietnamese expatriates in the prefecture.

For his part, Ambassador Cuong spoke highly of the strengths of Chiba, one of the leading international gateways and industrial and agricultural centres of Japan.

While hailing Kensaku’s determination to promote international cooperation, the Vietnamese diplomat affirmed that he will help the Japanese locality to bolster its links with their Vietnamese counterparts.

He took the occasion to invite Kensaku to lead a local business delegation in making a field trip to Vietnam in the near future.

During his stay in Chiba, Ambassador Cuong visited a farm owned by the WAGOEN agricultural group in order to learn about clean agricultural development models in connection with eco-tourism.

He also met with Vietnamese students studying in the Chiba Institute of Science, during which he was presented with an honorary doctorate, from rector of the institute Kiso Isao, for his contributions to promoting the friendship between the two nations.

Bordering Tokyo, Chiba is strong in terms of agricultural and industrial development and is also an attractive tourist destination.
