In the afternoon of October 3rd, Mr. Le Trung Chinh, Vice Chairman of the Da Nang People’s Committee met and worked with the Izumisano City Government Delegation (Japan) led by Mr. Yamatoya Takahiko, Vice Chairman of the City Council.
At the meeting, Mr. Yamatoya Takahiko said, Izumisano City of Osaka Prefecture, Japan has a history of nearly 1,000 years of development. As the city where Kansai International Airport is located, Izumisano has conducted many programs to restructure the landscape and infrastructure, cooperating with many airlines to become a famous and safe tourism city.
According to Mr. Yamatoya Takahiko, both Da Nang and Izumisano have advantages of tourism; therefore, it is necessary to strengthen cooperation and investment promotion activities for tourism development between the two cities which are international tourism gateways, especially to expand cooperation between the two airports. The Izumisano City delegation also expressed the desire that the two cities would promote cultural exchange activities, human resources training exchange in the fields of hospitality and nursing.
On behalf of the city leader, Mr. Le Trung Chinh highly appreciated the proposals of cooperation between Izumisano City and Da Nang City. He said, the number of Japanese businesses and tourists coming to Da Nang City is presently increasing, so the establishment of a Japanese Consulate Representative Office in Da Nang City in the near future would create many favorable conditions for investment promotion, especially organizing cultural exchanges to strengthen friendship and promote tourism cooperation.
Vice Chairman Le Trung Chinh hopes that Izumisano City will send government and art delegations to the Viet Nam-Japan Cultural Exchange Festival 2020, as well as support the cooperation and human resource exchanges between educational institutions and universities of Japan and Da Nang City.
