Seminar on Vietnam - Japan Economic Cooperation Growth
The event was attended by more than 800 students who are young leaders and managers participating in advanced political theory classes at the HCMA.
Prof. Tran Van Tho, an honorary professor at Waseda University in Japan emphasized Japan's significant interest in Vietnam's growth route and their cooperation, which includes institutional reforms, improved business climate, and assistance for Vietnam's development of industrialization plans. Related projects supporting such efforts include the Ishikawa project (1995-2000), the Vietnam-Japan partnership beginning in 2003, and a variety of industrial policy research initiatives.

According to the Professor, Vietnam has not been able to fully exploit this resource, and Vietnam may develop further by developing domestic resources and efficiently coordinating the two resources.
Professor Ikebe Ryo of Senshu University, Japan addressed the impact of the FDI wave on Vietnam's economic growth and industrialization process, as well as the economic efficiency provided by this capital source. According to the professor, enhancing labor productivity is critical for Vietnam to avoid falling into the middle-income trap. At the same time, policies to support the sector are required in Vietnam to encourage industry development and increase the added value of the FDI capital.
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Hoang Van Nghia, Head of the HCMA's International Cooperation Department, lauded Japan's contribution to Vietnam's diverse economic development in his speech. Japan's contribution has assisted Vietnam in maintaining a stable growth trajectory, owing to the far-reaching effects of foreign direct investment (FDI). Projects with Japan's assistance in terms of financing, specialists, and technology have supported Vietnam in transitioning from a capital- and labor-intensive model to one with a strong export-oriented structure.
