Strengthen Supporting Industry for both Japanese and Vietnamese companies in Vietnam


The Vietnam-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (VJEPA) was signed on 25th December 2008 and took effect from 01st October 2009. This is a comprehensive bilateral agreement that will boost trade liberalization of goods and services, economic cooperation and investment between the two countries. It has been also agreed to advance Vietnamese Supporting Industries (SI) for Japanese and Vietnamese enterprises.


Besides, SI development is one of the themes under the framework of the “Vietnam- Japan Joint Initiative”, which was launched to improve business climate in Vietnam upon the agreement by the two Prime Ministers.


In order to support for both Japanese and Vietnamese enterprises in fields of automobile, motorcycle, electric-electronic to have a chance of business exchange and products supply, JETRO Hanoi co-operates with VIETRADE to organize “Vietnam – Japan SI Exhibition” every two years.


In Ho Chi Minh City, JETRO Ho Chi Minh also co-operates with Investment & Trade Promotion Center (ITPC) under Ho Chi Minh People’s Committee as its counterpart to hold the same event “Vietnam – Japan SI Exhibition” once two years.


At the exhibition, Japanese enterprises as “BUYERS” display items they want to procure/localize from Vietnamese makers, and at the same time, Vietnamese makers as “SELLERS” show exhibits they wish to supply for the BUYERS.
