Illustrative image (Source: VNA)
Phase VIII of the initiative, launched in 2003, concluded in March 2023, under which 497 out of the 597 items were completed.
To promote its role, the Vietnamese Ministry of Planning and Investment proposed building a cooperation programme between small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) of the two countries, focusing on digital transformation, support industry and personnel training.
Japanese SMEs have capacity, experience and high tech, and Vietnamese firms have abundant human resources, which is reciprocal during their development cooperation.
The ministry suggested the Japanese side take more specific solutions and supplement workforce to further support Vietnamese enterprises in improving their capacity and competitiveness, and participating intensively in value chains.
According to a survey conducted by the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) in 2022, 60% of the Japanese firms said they plan to expand operations in Vietnam, the highest in Southeast Asia.
With the aim of joining the group of upper-middle income countries by 2030, Vietnam has paid attention to scientific-technological application, innovation, digital transformation, green transition, green economy, digital economy, circular economy and knowledge-based economy.
The country, therefore, is encouraging Japanese enterprises to step up investment in infrastructure, energy, manufacturing, high-tech agriculture, IT, smart urban development, financial services, banking and innovation.
The Vietnamese Government has committed to supporting businesses, contributing to advancing the Vietnam-Japan relationship to a new height.
Currently, Japan is running more than 5,000 valid projects in Vietnam with a total investment capital of over 69 billion USD, ranking third among the 141 countries and territories investing in the Southeast Asian nation.
Japanese investments were injected in 57 out of the 63 localities, mostly in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.
Meanwhile, Vietnam counts 104 projects in Japan worth some 19.2 million USD, making the East Asian nation the 36th among the 79 countries and territories receiving Vietnamese investments.
Japan is Vietnam's fourth biggest trade partner with two-way trade nearing 50 billion USD last year.
Localities in Vietnam's Red River Delta like Hai Phong, Quang Ninh, Hai Duong and Hung Yen said they stand ready to materialise cooperation opportunities between the two countries in high-tech agriculture, manufacturing, renewable energy and circular economy.
For Japan's official development assistance (ODA), Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment Tran Quoc Phuong noted that it accounts for more than 30% the accumulative bilateral development aid to Vietnam.
The assistance has played an important role in Vietnam's socio-economic development through large-scale infrastructure projects such as Tan Son Nhat and Noi Bai airports, Cai Lan, Lach Huyen and Cai Mep-Thi Vai seaports, and Nhat Tan Bridge, he stressed.
Yoshihisa Suzuki, Chairman of the Japan-Mekong Business Cooperation Committee under the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI), said at a recent economic forum that Vietnam has become an attractive destination for Japanese investors to expand services and start doing business.
The Vietnamese community in Japan has also helped intensify people-to-people exchange and technological cooperation between the two countries, he added./.

All 19 out of 19 urbans in the province have approved the general urban planning. However, there are 3 urbans approved in the previous period, which have not yet been adjusted to the planning, namely Dong Thanh townlet, Hiep Hoa townlet and Tan Tru townlet.
The zoning planning and detailed urban planning have largely been decentralized for implementing by the district People's Committees and the Department of Construction is responsible for commenting before the locality approves the planning. Currently, there are 6 projects approved by the Provincial People's Committee.
For the new-style rural planning, in the period 2013, 100 percent of communes have been approved planning projects. Currently, the localities continue to review and adjust the new-style rural planning (now the general planning for commune construction).

However, with the joint effort and consensus of the entire Party Committee, government and all people, in the first nine months of 2021, Tan An City has 11 out of 19 targets that are met and exceeded compared to the resolutions 2021. The epidemic in the city is basically under control, gradually returning to the "new normal" state.
During the year, the city directed to accelerate the implementation of groundbreaking programs. The management of urban planning and design has been strengthened. Investment in capital construction was implemented at the beginning of the year and capital sources were disbursed as planned. In the field of agriculture, the city continues to implement the Project of Agricultural Development in the suburbs of Tan An City until 2020, a vision to 2030. New-style rural construction program is also interested in improving quality.
Tan An City continues to give people Covid-19 vaccines
Despite some positive results, due to the impact of the epidemic, the city's economy developed slowly compared to the same period last year, especially in the third quarter of 2021. Budget revenue did not meet the schedule (as of September 30, only reached 56.3 percent of the provincial estimate), the balance collection was low. Site clearance still faces many difficulties, especially the Ring Road of Tan An City and the bridge over the Vam Co Tay River. The crime infringing on social order has decreased, but drug-related crimes tend to increase, etc.
According to the Secretary of the City Party Committee, Chairman of the People's Council of Tan An - Le Cong Dinh, the coordination in performing tasks between all levels, branches, agencies, units and localities present was not close, lack of consistency in the first months of the year. The work of grasping the situation and location of the Party committees and heads in some places is not good. Then, it affects forecasting and taking measures to deal with when situations arise, especially in the Covid-19 prevention and control.
The Tan An City Party Committee Frankly pointed out the causes of the shortcomings and limitations, especially the subjective ones, it determined the spirit of determination and seriously learned from experience to successfully deploy and implement the proposed political tasks. In particular, the city immediately started to implement solutions to safely adapt, flexibly and effectively control the Covid-19 epidemic, absolutely not being subjective, neglecting, taking communes and wards as "fortresses" and people are "soldiers" in epidemic prevention and control.
Mr. Le Cong Dinh informed that the city has deployed and implemented the plan for socio-economic recovery and development, especially the restoration of production and trade, creating favorable conditions for businesses to operate.

The Middle East and North Africa have high demand for fruits and vegetables, offering Vietnamese firms a great opportunity to boost exports, according to the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

Nguyen Minh Phuong, director of the ministry's Asia-Africa market department, said the Middle East, which comprises 15 countries and has a population of around 400 million people, has a high per capita income.
They import large volumes of agricultural products, including fruits and vegetables, she said.
Africa too has huge demand for agricultural products, but because of the distances, Vietnamese firms only export to countries in the north of the continent, she said.
Vietnam's exports of fruits and vegetables to the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) have soared from 255.1 million USD in 2019 to 380.3 million USD in 2021, with the main markets being Turkey, the UAE, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Iraq, Qatar, Morocco, and Algeria, she said.
But the exports account for only 2.6% of the region's total imports in 2021, she said.
Of the exports to MENA, cashew is the largest item, rising from 167.8 million USD worth in 2019 to 260.8 million USD in 2021 and accounting for 50.2% of its total imports, she said.
"Vietnamese cashew products are available in many supermarkets in the UAE, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and Egypt, and companies should continue to promote exports to the region," she said.
Vietnam also exports coconut products (mature coconut, copra and coconut oil), lemon, almond, macadamia, banana, grapefruit, guava, mango, mangosteen, watermelon, lychee, rambutan, plum, carrot, and radish to the region.
But because of the distance, it is not easy to export fresh fruits, and so Phuong suggested exporting frozen fresh fruits instead.
She said there are challenges in exporting to Africa and the Middle East, including fierce competition from India, Iran, Turkey, Thailand, the Philippines, China, the US, European countries, and South Africa.
To be successful, Vietnamese firms should understand the regulations in each market, including food hygiene and safety and pesticide residue requirements, and labelling in local languages, she said.
Halal certification is required to export to the Middle East, home to a large Muslim population, while products exported to Israel must have Kosher certification, she said.
LuLu, the leading supermarket chain in the UAE, is present in Vietnam and imports many products, and Vietnamese businesses should touch base with it to export their products to the Middle East, she said.
They should also join the ministry's trade promotion programmes to promote their products in the region, she added.
Dang Phuc Nguyen, general secretary of the Vietnam Fruit and Vegetables Association, said fruit and vegetable exports are expected to rise to 4 billion USD this year from 3.4 billion USD last year as many markets are allowing in Vietnamese fruits and China has reopened its borders.
Durian shipments alone fetched over 420 million USD last year after getting the green light to enter China through the official channel, and this year the figure is expected to top 1 billion USD, he said.
In the first two months of this year fruit and vegetable exports were worth 592 million USD, a 17.8% increase year-on-year.
China remained the major market, accounting for 57.5% of the exports./.
