Viet Nam News HA NOI – Japanese companies are focused on the Vietnamese market and seek wider, deeper co-operation with Vietnamese firms, Eiichi Tani from SME Support Japan said in Ha Noi on Monday.
Speaking at a meeting between a delegation of the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and Vinafco Joint Stock Corporation – a logistics service provider, Tani said Japanese businesses have now shifted their attention from the Chinese to the Vietnamese market.

The meeting was a part of the SME Support Japan’s support program for small- and medium-sized Japanese enterprises looking at international markets.
“The event was to help both sides exchange information on Viet Nam’s transport market in general, and both countries’ transport situation in particular,” Tani said. “It also touched upon necessary customs procedures to bring Japanese goods into Viet Nam.”
Tokuhiro Imamura, chairman of Imamura Joint Stock Company, which specialises in interiors, said his company is looking to expand its market. It plans to build a plant in Viet Nam in the future, Imamura said, adding that the company would export some products to Viet Nam to explore and understand the market.
