The Vietnamese Embassy has over time arranged fundraising campaigns to support the nearly 100,000 Vietnamese studying in Japan.

AEON’s recent importation of fresh fruit from Vietnam bolstered the two countries’ trade and economic relations, the diplomat added.

Major AEON Group companies donate 1 percent of their pre-tax profits to the AEON 1% Club Foundation, which was established in 1989 and engages in corporate social responsibility activities./.
