HÀ NỘI (VNS) — Deputy Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc has suggested that Việt Nam and Japan focus on addressing difficulties and boosting trade promotion to increase Vietnamese agricultural and aquatic exports to Japan.
Phúc made the recommendation at a reception in Hà Nội on Saturday for Japanese Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Motoo Hayashi.
Welcoming the minister and his delegation to attend the first meeting of the Việt Nam-Japan Joint Committee on Industrial, Trade and Energy Cooperation with the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Deputy PM expressed his belief that the meeting will be a success and contribute to the development of the bilateral economic and trade ties.
He asked Japan to help Việt Nam develop the support industry, build a nuclear power plant in Ninh Thuận, and improve the quality of its human resources.
Hayashi said he hoped that the two countries would intensify economic, trade and energy co-operation.
The two sides should early hold policy dialogues related to garment and textiles, introduce technologies to ensure safety for nuclear power plants, and focus on developing human resources, he suggested. — VNS
