has just been established for a few years but has developed
rapidly, with a good record of safety and increasingly high quality
services. With the expansion of international and domestic flight
networks together with its new and modern
fleet, Vietjet will become a strong carrier in the region. I would
like to also congratulate Vietjet on becoming an official member
of the Keidanren Ė Japan Business Federation (Japan), which is an

businesses in general.Ē
