Notice of establishment of a new company in Vietnam   JAPAN NUS Co., Ltd. (JANUS) is pleased to announce that JANUS and KANSO Co., Ltd. (KANSO) established a joint venture company called JNK Environmental Research & Consulting Co., Ltd. (Location: Hanoi City) in Socialist Republic of Vietnam where continuous economic growth is expected.
  Recently, Vietnam is attracting much attention as a promising market where Japanese companies are eager to expand their businesses since it has been maintaining high economic growth by transition to market economy and integration into global economy. This trend is expected to continue and Vietnam is most likely to maintain a high economic growth rate in the future. On the other hand, it can be observed that rapid industrialization and urbanization accompanying economic growth are the causes of serious environmental problems, such as water pollution of rivers and coastal areas because of water effluent from industries and domestic sewage; or air pollution because of emissions from power plants and motorcycles.
  Taking into account the reality of such market environment, JANUS will take advantage of its knowledge and experiences as environmental and energy consultancy company cultivated so far in Japan and Hanoi representative office and integrate it with KANSO’s strength, i.e., experiences and skills in the field of environmental investigation and analysis. By doing so, JNK aims to develop business in environmental consulting, environmental research / analysis and merchandise trading to contribute to sustainable development in Vietnam.
