Municipal authorities are striving to actively promote cooperation with partners and localities of Japan in many fields, he said.

Through the programme, Can Tho hopes the close relations between the two countries will be further strengthened, and it will serve as a bridge to connect Can Tho with more Japanese investors and tourists.

Japanese Consul General in Ho Chi Minh City Kwaue Junichi said the event offers a good chance for people and enterprises of Can Tho to understand more about Japan’s culture, thus forming Vietnam-Japan trade projects in the future.
