Vietnam Kizuna Ekiden 2018 – Run for Traffic Safety is a meaningful sport event, a cultural specificity that owns the true humanistic manner of Japan. We are so proud of not only being the Gold sponsor, but also getting a chance to genuinely compete in the relay race; and we deeply feel the  value of teamwork, the power of gathering an individual into a group. Moreover, Vietnam Kizuna Ekiden 2018 is also a good opportunity for us to connect, learn from colleagues, friends working in Japanese enterprises as well as in other firms doing business in Vietnam”.
