He said that the move helps bolster trade and cultural exchange as well as develop tourism, particularly medical tourism.

The HCM City leader took the occasion to thank Nagato Natsume, who is also Director of the Japanese Cleft Palate Foundation, for his help for Vietnamese children with cleft palate, blindness and blood cancer.

He expressed his hope that in the role as the Honorary Consul of Vietnam, Nagato Natsume will continue his efforts to enhance the relations between Vietnam and Japan in general and Ho Chi Minh City and Aichi prefecture in particular.

The Japanese guest, for his part, said that he will work to enhance and carry out collaborative programmes, especially those in the economy, labour cooperation, citizen protection, education and healthcare, between the two localities in an effective manner.

Many Vietnamese students are living and pursuing study in Aichi while the prefecture is in need of young human resources with a great capacity to work at its enterprises and factories, he stressed.

Currently, there are some 200 businesses from Aichi investing in Vietnam, and some 23,000 Vietnamese people are working and studying in the Japanese locality.
