HA NOI (VNS) — Japan's former Minister for Science and Technology Policy, Iwao Matsuda, was received by State President Truong Tan Sang in Ha Noi yesterday.
Matsuda presented an innovative project to tap into the expertise of senior Japanese human resources to boost technology transfer and industrialisation in Viet Nam.
He said he was looking to launch the project as soon as possible, since it had garnered substantial support from the Japanese Government and relevant agencies.
Sang said the project would contribute to the realisation of the Joint Statement on the Extensive Strategic Partnership signed in March, 2014, in Tokyo.
The President acknowledged that Japan's senior human resources, a valuable source of expertise that helped make Japan the successful economy it is today, would help accelerate the industrialisation process in Viet Nam.
Matsuda also acts as head of the Vietnam Festival Organising Board in Japan. — VNS
