The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) wants to promote agricultural partnerships between Vietnam and Japan, with a focus on private sector investment and food value chains. 
JICA spoke about the effort at a seminar held in HCM City on January 26 organised by JICA, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) and the Vietnam Farmer’s Union (VFU). 
Officials, businesses, groups and individuals with interest in the topic attended the event, which discussed creating food value chains in Nghe An province and current challenges. 
Besides exchanging ideas on agricultural development, calls for investments from private companies in agriculture were also heard.
