Japanese Ambassador to Vietnam Umeda Kunio, Chairman of the Association Meada Toshimichi and representatives of the province participated in the event which took place on the occasions of the locality’s 185th founding anniversary and 20-year re-establishment celebration.
The Japanese project, which aims to grow cherries in Vietnam, has been underway since 2012 and so far over 1,000 trees have been planted in the Southeast Asian country, said Ambassador Umeda Kunio, adding that it will carry on until one million trees have been planted.
He also expressed his hope that the cultivation of Japanese cherries in Vietnam will help to develop friendly bilateral relations between the two countries in general as well as between Bac Ninh province and Chukyo region in particular.
Bac Ninh is an attractive destination for international businesses, including Japan. Japanese firms have implemented 73 projects worth USD 1.3 billion in the locality./.
