Global Training School is an annual program hosted by JCI chapters in Japan’s Kinki area (Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, Himeji, Nishinomiya, etc.) with the goal of networking and learning more about member businesses and local markets in JCI countries in the Asia-Pacific region. After a three-year break due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Global Training School has resumed this year with Ho Chi Minh City as the destination to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the foundation of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Japan. JCI South Saigon is the event’s organizer.
Over 80 Japanese enterprises and several Vietnamese businesses participated in the exchange and trade program
More than 80 members from 27 JCI chapters in the Kinki area, including Japanese business leaders and several Vietnamese enterprises from various sectors, attended the event. The event has allowed Vietnamese and Japanese companies to network, exchange, and collaborate. As part of the program, Japanese businesses were allowed to visit different factories to learn more about Vietnamese enterprises.

Since the establishment of diplomatic relations in 1973, Vietnam and Japan have maintained a friendly and cooperative relationship in various areas, including politics, economics, culture, and sports, from the national leadership level to the grassroots level. Vietnam and Japan will commemorate 50 years of diplomatic relations in 2023, reflecting on the past 50 years and creating the foundation for further elevated development of the relationship in the future, extending to the regional and global levels as equal partners who benefit each other.
Vietnam has been regarded as a key market for Japanese investors. According to the findings of the Japan External Trade Organization’s (JETRO) Survey on Business Conditions for Japanese Companies Operating Overseas in FY2022, 60% of Japanese businesses aim to expand their activities in Vietnam in the next 1-2 years. This is the highest rate in ASEAN, surpassing Thailand (40.3%), Indonesia (47.8%), and Myanmar (11.7%).
