Chairman of the Board of Hai Phong JSC, Mr. Nguyen Xuan Tuyen, participated in the event for planting 1000 cherry blossom trees at Hoa Binh Park (Hanoi) this morning (23/02/2019). The event was organized by AEON (Hai Phong’s partner in developing AEON Mall shopping centers in Vietnam) and Hanoi’s People Committee.
Participants of the event included Chairman of Hanoi’s People Committee, Mr. Nguyen Duc Chung; Ambassador of Japan to Vietnam, Mr. Kunio Umeda, AEON Mall Group, 250 volunteers from AEON Group, partner companies and universities from Hanoi City.
This is the third consecutive year AEON Mall Group organized cherry planting event at Hoa Binh Park and the second year Hai Phong JSC participated in the event. A new generation of 1000 cherry blossom trees has been planted on the land of Dien Bien on this occasion.
Mr. Naoki Hayashi, Director of AEON Environment Fund, said: “As a business striving toward environmentally sustainable development, AEON always pays great attention to planting and protecting green trees. AEON has planted 75,000 trees in Thua Thien Hue province since 2010, followed by 15,000 trees in Ba Vi national park during 2014, and so far 1,700 cherry blossoms in Hoa Binh Park (Hanoi). AEON is honored to join hands to preserve Vietnam as well as to contribute to the relationship between Japan and Vietnam”.
“We hope that after the Lunar New Year we can organize a tree planting event in Hanoi. We hope that Hanoi’s people can enjoy cherry blossoms right here. Hoa Binh Park will become a symbol for friendship between Vietnam and Japan”, Mr Naoki Hayashi added.
The very first trees planted at Hoa Binh Park have blossomed in spring 2019, earlier than expected. “As we have the cherry blossoms in spring, I believe that the partnership between Vietnam and Japan in general, between Hanoi and AEON in particular, will be greater than ever”, Chairman of Hanoi’s People Committee, Mr. Nguyen Duc Chung said.
In the second year participating in AEON’s event, Hai Phong JSC planted 10 cherry blossom trees. “Hai Phong JSC is glad to contribute a small green space in Hoa Binh Park. We hope that AEON will continue to bring more green shades to other cities in Vietnam through event such as today’s cherry planting event.” Mr. Nguyen Xuan Tuyen, Chairman of the Board at Hai Phong JSC said.
In 05/2018, Hai Phong successfully promoted AEON Mall Le Chan – Hai Phong shopping center project. AEON Mall has signed official contract with Hai Phong to receive its consultancy to develop new shopping malls in Hoang Mai (Hanoi), Vung Tau, and Ho Chi Minh City.
