Vietnam can avail of many opportunities to promote exports to Japan, particularly in garments, steel, wood decorative items, agricultural products and footwear, said Vo Thanh Ha, deputy head of the Asia Pacific Market Department at a conference organised by Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency on May 22.
Japan provides favourable legal and economic conditions for Vietnamese enterprises to enter this highly potential market.
To promote exports to Japan, Vietnamese firms should timely grasp market information and understand the business habits of Japanese companies.
They should take full advantage of support channels in Vietnam and Japan, and enjoy the preferential treatment brought about by bilateral and multilateral trade agreements. In addition, Vietnamese export firms should respect and follow all norms of regulations and food safety and hygiene standards.
