Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Pham Dai Duong highlighted the local potential and advantages in economic development, especially sea-based economy.

With long coastlines and favourable climate and soil conditions as well as sufficient infrastructure, the province is capable of developing spearhead economies such as tourism, clean agriculture, support industry, and renewable energy.

The locality is working with international partners, including those from Japan, to build long-term strategies, planning schemes and visions in association with sustainable development and environmental protection, he revealed.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Japan Vu Hong Nam said this is an appropriate time for Japanese businesses to invest in Vietnam and Phu Yen in particular thanks to the sound relations between the two countries. Vietnam’s implementation of foreign investment attraction policies over the past 30 years has creates a favourable environment for overseas investors, he said.

Vietnam has joined many free trade agreements in the region, including the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), which enables foreign firms to export their products from Vietnam to other markets, he added.

The investment promotion conference in Tokyo was co-hosted by the Vietnamese Embassy in Japan, the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI), and the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) with the participation of nearly 100 businesses and organizations in Japan.
