Within the framework of a visit to Japan, Deputy Standing Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee Tat Thanh Cang called on Japan to invest in Ho Chi Minh City-Can Tho high speed railway during a meeting with Japanese Deputy Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) Hisayuki Fujii on September 6. Mr. Tat Thanh Cang said that the infrastructure development could not satisfy the development demand of the city’s economy and society. Therefore, he hoped that Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan will invest in developing urban infrastructure systems in Vietnam. With population of over 10 million people, the Mekong Delta is a potential region for economic development. So, the project of HCMC- Can Tho Railway will contribute to the regional economic development. Excepting for technology and experience support, the city leaders called for ODA investment projects from MLIT in the key’s constructions. Mr. Hisayuki Fujii pledged that MLIT will support investment into the HCMC- Can Tho railway system. At the meeting with Vietnamese Embassy in Japan, Mr. Tat Thanh Cang said that nearly 100 Japanese enterprises in Ho Chi Minh City focus on supplier industry, economy & society and trade every year. Mr.Tat Thanh Cang asked ambassador Nguyen Quoc Cuong to continue support the city in luring investment on fields of electronic, electrical engineering and medicinal chemistry.
