Minister Dung thanked Takebe for his active activities and contributions to promoting the Vietnam-Japan friendship over the past time.

Vietnam and Japan has lifted up the two countries’ relations to a comprehensive strategic partnership for peace and prosperity in Asia and the world in 2023. This significant foundation is set to propel the partnership into a new phase with many potential and strategic collaborations.

“The issue is not only about upgrading the ties but importantly also organising activities to achieve practical effectiveness worthy of Vietnam-Japan relationship,” the minister said.

Vietnam looks forward to having Japan and Takebe’s support through specific programmes in areas such as large-scale and high-quality infrastructure, energy transition, digital transformation, green transformation, carbon emission reduction, innovation, semiconductor, and helping Vietnamese businesses improve their competitiveness to join deeply in the global value chain.

For his part, Takebe expressed his gratitude upon meeting Minister Dung again and agreed with the host’s proposals. He said the Vietnam-Japan partnership is currently at its best phase with various potential for cooperation in all spheres, affirming his continued interest and support for promoting partnership with Vietnam, especially in above mentioned areas to further deepen the two countries’ relationship.

Regarding human resource training, the special advisor mentioned the Vietnam-Japan University (VJU) and the Japanese Culture and Language Centre to provide educational cooperation with personnel training programmes that meet practical demands and needs of both sides.

Minister Dung spoke highly of Takebe’s ideas in cooperation in human resource training, including facilitating the development of the VJU. He affirmed that his ministry would closely coordinate with related ministries and sectors in solving difficulties to promote the VJU construction. He proposed Japan consider allocating new-generation official development assistance (ODA) to build a rail route from downtown Hanoi to the Hoa Lac Hi-Tech Park that Vietnam is planning./.
