Business trip to Vietnam

2023.10/17I went on a business trip to Vietnam to visit the local market until ~20.

I participated in an exhibition called Vietnam Plas again this year, but maybe because of the opening of Corona
The atmosphere inside the venue was very lively.
Companies have set up booths, and the original materials of molding machines and pulverized products are on display.
I was just overwhelmed to see them selling their technology.

Naturally, there are many companies involved in plastics overseas
I was amazed again, and the way I felt was very different from when I was in Japan.

Outside of work, what was interesting was that the capital city of Hanoi has a plan to ban motorcycles by 2030.
It's progressing.
Vietnam is said to be a "motorcycle powerhouse" and has a high usage rate of motorcycles, and there are some Japan manufacturers.
In some places, there were more cars than cars, and there were people with three family members.
For Vietnamese people, motorcycles are an inseparable part of their lives.

Opposition to this regulation is overwhelming and it seems that maintenance is not realistic.
I felt that if we proceeded, it would have a great impact not only on the lives of the local people but also on Japan.
