He briefed the investors on Vietnam’s stable political and macro-economy, high economic growth rate, strategic locations, and signed and to be signed free trade agreements including the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement: “Vietnam and Japan have signed a bilateral FTA and a multilateral FTA within ASEAN. We have signed CPTPP and are moving toward the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership. Vietnam and Japan have participated extensively in the global value chain. With its advantages and potential, Vietnam offers great opportunities for multilateral groups to reform and create a difference in their supply chain.”
