Vietnam looks for greater cooperation with Japan and encourages Japanese enterprises to expand investment and operations in the country, particularly in supporting industries, manufacture, hi-tech farming, renewable energy, Phuc said at a meeting with Japan’s Foreign Minister Motegi Toshimitsu on January 6.
Phuc also asked Japan to create favorable conditions for Vietnam’s agro-forestry-fishery products to access its market. Meanwhile, Vietnam welcomes delegations of Japanese companies to look for business opportunities in the country.
Additionally, Phuc highly regarded Vietnam and Japan's efficient cooperation in international and regional forums, expecting Japan to continue supporting ASEAN and Vietnam’s stance in ensuring peace, security and navigation freedom in the South China Sea.
Japan’s FM Toshimitsu said he is committed to contributing to strong bilateral diplomatic relations.
According to Toshimitsu, Vietnam’s important roles as ASEAN Chair and non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, are the reasons for him to chose Vietnam as the first country to visit this year.
Toshimitsu thanked Phuc for boosting bilateral cooperation in various fields, including the official development assistance (ODA) and Japanese projects in Vietnam.
Japan expected the negotiations on Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) would be soon finalized with active contribution of Vietnam, said Tohshimitsu, adding that the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans – Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) is bringing mutual benefits for all parties involved.
The Japanese FM also said Japan would continue to promote the entry of Vietnamese agricultural products to its market, and is willing to support Vietnam to develop e-government.
Toshimitsu stressed both Vietnam and Japan share the same concern about the South China Sea situation and other regional issues, in which Japan backs the settlement of territorial disputes via peaceful means.
