Attending the event, the visitors also have the opportunity to discuss and ask questions directly to representatives of ANP and HELENE stem cell center, PhD. People Doctor Nguyen Van Quynh and customers who have used Stem Cell Health Care service at HELENE Stem Cell Center. There are many questions brought out but many questions have to be left after the program because of the length of the program. That illustrates the interest of Vietnamese customers in health care services in Japan generally and the application of stem cell technology in the treatment of diseases and beauty particularly. This is a great motivation for ANP to fulfill our mission as a bridge to introduce and supply the best health care products from Japan to the Vietnamese consumers.
