The cabinet member praised CJ Corporation for investing in diverse fields in Vietnam, including food production research, logistics and film production for export, while asking the company to support Vietnam in developing organic agriculture.
PM Phuc appreciated the RoK’s success in promoting its culture in other countries, saying he hopes that it will share its experience with Vietnam in this regard.
He said he believes that more than 150,000 Koreans living and working in Vietnam along with leading Korean enterprises investing in the country such as Samsung, LG, Lotte and CJ will help create a new wave of Korean investment into Vietnam in the near future.
The Korean guest told his host that CJ is investing in a research centre on food safety in Ho Chi Minh City in order to manufacture safe products using Vietnamese materials for export. Its affiliate CJ Logistics – the largest logistics provider in the RoK, has recently established a joint venture with Vietnam’s Gemadept Corporation.
He said CJ also ventured in film production in Vietnam which are set to be broadcast in many countries and it is investing in agricultural production in the southern province of Ninh Thuan.
