The first direct flight departing from Tokyo to the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho will carry over 100 Japanese chief executive officers to participate in a wide range of activities to be organised this weekend on the occasion of the 45th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Vietnam and Japan.

The CEOs will participate in the city’s events over a wide range of topics from November 1 to November 4, according to the Can Tho branch of the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI Can Tho).

In specifics, the Japanese guests will first attend a photo exhibition depicting Japanese peace movement in support of Vietnam during wartime and the Vietnam-Japan friendship, which will take place at Luu Huu Phuoc Park in the city.

Then, Can Tho University and Japanese enterprises will host an opening ceremony for the centre of Information Technology Exploitation office at the university.

Besides this, two more events will begin on the evening of November 2 at Luu Huu Phuoc Park: the celebration of the 45th anniversary of Vietnam-Japan diplomatic ties and the Vietnam-Japan Festival.

The two countries will co-host another ceremony the next day to announce the establishment of Vietnam-Japan Friendship Industrial Park in Hung Phu 1 Industrial Park in the city, alongside multiple programmes such as the Vietnam-Japan Business Forum, the Japan Job Fair and the Vietnam-Japan Cultural Exchange Seminar, held at the Muong Thanh and TTC hotels.
