“The promotion activities are expected to contribute to the attainment of export values of US$500 million in 2021 and $1 billion by 2025 of Vietnamese goods through the AEON system,” he told The Hanoi Times.
Nakagawa Tetsuyuki, General Director of AEON MALL Vietnam said at the event: “We will continue to accompany and engage with the local community, supporting sustainable production activities with the goal of creating useful values for the community.”
