He was impressed by the bright eyes of the children and people who are working hard towards the realization of happiness for tomorrow. It looks like Japanese after WWII had worked hard and achieved the economy revolution. The key of Industry development in Vietnam must be relied on supporting industries, deployment and success of Japanese small and medium enterprises will be primed.
