Leading the delegation, Kensi Hotta, head of a Japanese non-profit organisation for international cancer patients, said he and his co-workers are looking forward to establishing a cancer treatment centre in Hanoi, which will have advanced technology from Japan. 

The centre will be located inside Hospital K – the National Cancer Institute on 43 Quan Su Street, Hoan Kiem district. 

Japan will send experts to Vienam support local doctors and is willing to assist Vietnamese medical personnel to study in Japan, Kesi Hotta stated. 

Chung said local authorities will clear all hurdles for the centre to begin operations soon. 

He hoped the Japanese experts would support the transfer of early detection technologies for gastrointestinal cancer for Saint Paul Hospital. 

The rate of gastrointestinal and lung cancer in Vietnam remains high, with hospital K often overloaded with patients.
