It seems the news of the Fukushima nuclear accident never reached Vietnam.
Jiji Tsushin (4/21/2012):
Vietnam premier trusts the Japanese technology for nuclear power plants
Prime Minister of Vietnam Nguyễn Tấn Dũng held a press conference in Tokyo on April 21. On the Japanese support for the nuclear power plant construction in Vietnam, the prime minister welcomed it by saying "I trust the Japanese technology. I would like to see the cutting-edge technology used [in building the plant]."
In return, Japan will increase the number of healthcare workers from Vietnam. (Never mind that many young people are unemployed or underemployed in Japan these days.)
There is also a non-profit organization that will bring 6,000 young Vietnamese men to Japan and have them "trained" at the nuclear power plants in Japan. (That news was at Sankei Shinbun last July, but the link has since disappeared. If you read Japanese, here's my copy.)
Win-win for businesses and well-connected politicians.
