During the Japan IT Day 2018, Mr. Hironobu Kitagawa, Chief Representative of Japan External Trade Organization (Jetro) in Hanoi, said that the shortage of human resources and the increasing demand for new technology human resources will open a huge cooperation demand for Japanese and Vietnamese enterprises in the near future. Currently, Japan has invested in 54 projects in the IT sector, accounting for 19.6% of total investment projects in Vietnam and the investment wave of Japanese enterprises continues to increase in the coming time.


Japan places the second among 142 FDI investors in Vietnam. Trade cooperation between Vietnam and Japan is on the rise. FPT Corporation in particular is now a partner and strategic partner of many Japanese enterprises such as Hitachi, Panasonic, Toshiba, Nissen ... This opens up great opportunities for Japanese language students when the labor market is always "thirsty" for human resources who are fluent in Japanese language and have deep understanding of the culture of this country.
