The Keidanren membership, the first of its kind for a Vietnamese company, will enable the corporation to affirm its position in the Japanese market, reach out to strategic partners such as Toyota, Sumitomo, Mitsubishi, and Toshiba, and at the same time help Vietnamese businesses access large partners of Japan and across the globe.
Welcoming FPT to the Japanese business federation, Keidanren Managing Director Kiyoaki Fujiwara said the move not only contributes to strengthening economic relations between Vietnam and Japan, but also to realizing Society 5.0, a big societal transformation plan that Keidanren is pursuing.
FPT CEO Truong Gia Binh noted FPT is proud to become the member of Japan’s largest comprehensive economic organization. A pioneer in digital technology transformation, FPT will make strides in attracting Japanese investment to Vietnam and bridge the Vietnam-Japan business communities, contributing to strengthening solidarity and friendship between the two nations.
