Nakagawa said AEON Group considers Vietnam a key market to expand operations, especially in retail.
Noting that AEON currently has five shopping malls in Vietnam, including two in Hanoi, he wished that leaders of the city would continue offering support to AEONMALL Vietnam to expand its operations. In the near future, he hoped that the city will soon approve the company’s parking area and shopping mall project at Giap Bat bus terminal in Hoang Mai district.
If allowed, it will be the largest project implemented by the company in Vietnam, he said, adding that AEONMALL Vietnam is also studying more shopping mall projects in Hanoi in the future.
Hue, for his part, said the project at the bus terminal will be submitted to the municipal Party Committee for consideration, so that the license certificate could be handed over to the company at the city’s investment promotion conference scheduled for late June and early July.
He suggested that the company should consider expanding investment into consumption credit and cashless payment to best serve local residents.
