HCM City, (VNA) – The Vietnam Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Industry and Trade (VietinBank) together with Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG – Japan) co-organized a “Business Matching Fair in Vietnam” on October 23 in Ho Chi Minh City. The event was highly evaluated by companies from the two countries.
Be satisfied with the professional organization
Being organized for the first time in HCM City in December, 2012, Business Matching is an added value service provided by VietinBank to the key customers to expand their business coverage, diversify distribution channels, develop the new market, etc. Thanks to the past experiences, MUFG and VietinBank have carefully prepared for the event “Business Matching Fair in Vietnam”.
VietinBank find and introduce business partners matched with the client’s business needs through the utilization of its worldwide network of banks and financial institutions. “This is a meaningful event. So many Vietnamese enterprises have demand to export their products to Japan, but find it difficult to find prestigious partners and customers in this market. Through this event, the potential Japanese customers were carefully selected and introduced, so the businesses would be more secured. This is a good opportunity for us to meet customers that have been filtered prior to the event. I do hope that VietinBank would keep organizing this current event annually, as well as expand it year by year to attract more Japanese corporates into Vietnam and vice versa,” Bien Viet Nhu – Chairman, General Director of South Vina Shrimp JSC said.
Nha Be Garment Corporation has twice participated in the Business Matching Fair organized by VietinBank. According to Phan Hoang Anh – Deputy Head of Sales Department, this is a large-scale event that attracted a number of businesses, particularly from Japan. Nha Be Garment Corporation has been provided with very detailed and specific information on the corporates that they will connect with. The delegations joining the event are mostly business leaders/decision makers, or those who are directly seeking for the purchase orders and business connections; thus, the key benefits to corporates from the fair are shown in a direct way.
Hoang Anh also highly appreciated the comprehensive preparation process of MUFG and VietinBank: each company was accompanied and supported by VietinBank staff and interpreter for every single business meeting.
“Our desire for this event has been fulfilled through the partners that we have been arranged and connected,” Hoang Anh said.
The company IGM also had chances to meet two potential Vietnamese companies to cooperate with in the near future, during its first time joining Business Matching Fair in Vietnam. The representatives of IGM said that VietinBank and MUFG are two leading banks in both countries, so that they hope to continue to participate in connecting events organized by the two banks.
The effect has been seen right at the event
The great success of the Business Matching Fair in Vietnam can be felt by the joy of the businesses that have found the right partner and explored collaboration opportunity at the event. Sai Gon Private Garment Export Co., Ltd. is one such business. The company director – Vu Thi Kim Loan excitedly said, ”We have two appointments with two Japanese corporates to visit our factory right after the event. They would send their request for us to prepare the sample and quotation. Thanks to the very detailed information about the Japanese businesses provided by the event organizers, we have carefully chosen and prepared for the event, leading to the positive results.”
Hoang Bich Ngoc – Deputy Director of Commerce Division, An Phat Group said: “An Phat have a plan to deploy cutting-edge technology into production line, so with the Japanese construction materials manufacturer introduced to us today, we do believe that our collaboration is very potential to reach. This event is very practical and effective in terms of meeting result. First, these are enterprises that truly wish to meet An Phat. Second, both sides did study on each other’s profile, with VietinBank’s great assistance, which leads to quicker results than exhibition fairs that we joined in the past.”
It should be mentioned Nissin Medical, a Japanese medical equipment manufacturing company established in July 2018 and expected to start the production in next April. Hence, the company’s director came to Vietnam to find partners to supply components for their transportation products. After the meetings, Kazuki Hattori – Director of Nissin Medical said that he has found a great partner in Vietnam. The establishment of the factory is seen as very promising in the future.
