Governor Osawa Masaaki highly valued the professional skills and working spirit of Vietnamese employees in Gunma in general and Vietnamese engineers in Koganei Seiki Co. Ltd. in particular.

Meanwhile, these engineers commented that they are well treated and very welcomed here. The salary and other fringe benefits of the company are impressive.

The President stated that the employment of Vietnamese engineers to work in high-tech companies in Gunma is the strongest evident about the close and active cooperation between Vietnam and Japan.

He appreciated the support and trust from Japanese employers to Vietnamese workers and hoped that this cooperation will be strengthened more in the future.

The President also advised Vietnamese engineers to promote their learning and creative spirit in their work to prove their usefulness and to help the company develop more while demonstrating the beautiful cultural values of the Vietnamese. This will aid to reinforce the collaborative relationship between the two nations.
