Mr. Ishida Takayuki, General Director of Vietnam Supporting Industry Development Investment Consulting Company Limited (Japan), said that it is expected that in the next 20 years, about 42,600 new aircraft will be produced. Boeing has committed to supporting Vietnamese businesses in participating in the product supply chain and producing supporting components, so businesses need to invest to find opportunities to enter this supply chain.
