(VOV) - The Embassy of Vietnam in Japan, in co-ordination with Hanoi Women Business Association, organized a seminar on strengthening Vietnam-Japan trade on Friday. The event aims to foster two-way trade of arts and craft and consumer goods, and attract Japanese businesses to invest in Vietnam.

Vietnamese ambassador to Japan Doan Xuan Hung said Japan is one of Vietnam’s leading partners with bilateral trade turnover in 2011 hitting US$21 billion and Japan’s committed investment capital in Vietnam reaching US$26 billion. Okano Masaaki, deputy director of Japan’s Asia New Power Company, said: “Vietnamese businesses should work harder to penetrate the Japanese market, which requires high quality standards. Japanese companies need to clarify this issue to their Vietnamese partners”.
