Chairman Hue lauded the role of the ambassador and the embassy in fostering the nations’ extensive strategic partnership over the past time.

He said Yamada has made contribution to promoting Japanese Prime Minister Suga Yoshihide’s visit to Viet Nam – his first trip overseas after taking office in October last year, and to enhancing exchanges between the two countries' high-ranking leaders, particularly recent phone talks between Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong and State President Nguyen Xuan Phuc and PM Suga.

The top legislator said he is pleased to see that, on the basis of their bilateral political trust, the two countries' economic, trade and investment cooperation has continued to develop and achieve impressive results.

He affirmed Viet Nam always considers Japan an important and long-term partner, and supports Japan in making positive contributions to peace and development in the region and in the world.

Viet Nam also appreciates and attaches importance to Japan’s ODA for the nation, he said. He took the occasion to thank Japan for its provision of a cold chain for Viet Nam’s preservation of COVID-19 vaccines. Hue said he hopes Japan will share and transfer the COVID-19 vaccine production technology for Viet Nam.

Expressing his delight at progresses recorded in cooperation between Vietnamese and Japanese law-making bodies, Hue expected the ambassador will pay attention to strengthening exchanges between parliamentarians of the two countries, especially young and female parliamentarians; and boosting information and experience cooperation and exchange in legislative work, supervision and decision-making regarding important national issues.

For his part, Yamada said he will forward Hue’s practical recommendations to the President of the House of Councillors and Speaker of the House of Representatives of Japan

The diplomat said a recent survey by the Japan Bank for International Cooperation showed that the Japanese business community considers Viet Nam the most attractive investment destination in the ASEAN region.

This shows that Japan attaches great importance to Viet Nam and predicts more active works from the nation in Viet Nam in the future, he said, adding that the embassy make efforts to fully convey Japanese firms’ opinions to the National Assembly of Viet Nam.
