Speaking at the event, chairman and CEO of the group Takeshi Ikai said the event aimed at strengthening the connection between the Vietnamese workers and their Japanese colleagues as well as reflecting the company’s gratitude for their contributions to the business.

Phan Tien Hoang, chief representative of the Vietnamese Ministry of Labour, Invalids, and Social Affairs in Japan, lauded the Ikai Group’s efforts to ensure the material and spiritual lives of its Vietnamese apprentices and engineers.

Highlighting the festival as an opportunity for mutual understanding, he recommended Vietnamese workers respect the firm’s regulations and the host nation’s laws and learn from Japan’s advanced science-technology knowledge.

Tsutomu Takebe, Special Advisor to the Japan-Vietnam Friendship Parliamentary Alliance, said the group provides a top training facility for both Japanese and Vietnamese workers.

He hoped Vietnamese apprentices will adopt Japanese technologies to take home and develop their country.

Established in 1970, the Ikai Group operates in different fields, including mechanics, electricity, electronics, medicine and industrial chemicals, among others. It is now home to 236 apprentices and 16 engineers from the Southeast Asian nation.
