Mr. Phuc said Vietnam is fully integrating into the world economy and now has relations with 220 countries and territories. This Sunday Vietnam will sign a free trade agreement with the European Union, Mr. Phuc noted, adding that it has FTAs with 15 nations out of the Group of Twenty (G20).
The Prime Minister called on Japanese enterprises, especially those in the IT sector, to invest more in Vietnam, as Japan is a developed country with many big investors in the IT field.
The Vietnamese Government promises to protect the rights and interests of investors, the Prime Minister said.
The leaders of Japanese technology firms like Hitachi, Toshiba, Daikin, Fujitsu, and Kansai Economy, who have invested in Vietnam for a long time, said they consider Vietnam a good place to expand their business.
