Consul General of Japan Nobuhiro Watanabe, Chairman of the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry in HCMC Kohzo Mizushima, and representatives of multiple firms and partners also participated in the event.
Becamex Tokyu’s new project, the “SORA gardens SC” shopping center, which will be the first shopping center in Binh Duong New City, is set to be put into operation in the spring of 2023. The large-scale project will cover an area of over 120,000 square meters, marking the first step for the trade development at the Binh Duong New City gateway area.
“SORA gardens SC” with the message of “Beautifying their life” has a strategic lessee, the AEON supermarket.
