HÀ NỘI — Minister of Public Security Gen. Tô Lâm hosted Sugano Yuichi, new Chief Representative of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) Việt Nam Office, and his outgoing predecessor Akira Shimizu in Hà Nội on Monday.
Lâm said his ministry had received active cooperation from Japanese partners in information sharing and exchange, criminal fighting and prevention, human resources training, and non-refundable aid, among other activities.
The Vietnamese body had been assisted by JICA through a series of police capacity training courses and programme, he said, believing that such joint work would thrive in the time to come based on the countries’ extensive strategic partnership for peace and prosperity in Asia.
The minister suggested JICA pay further attention to increasing funds helping develop the public security force in fields of Japan’s strength such as high technology, digital transformation, supply of anti-terrorism equipment and means, coastal law enforcement, fire prevention, save and rescue, and personnel training.
He pledged the ministry’s close cooperation with JICA in ensuring security and safety for events celebrating the 50th anniversary of the two countries' diplomatic relations, and for Japanese businesses and citizens living, working, and studying in Việt Nam.
Lâm expressed his belief that the joint work would continue achieving success and contribute to fortifying the nations’ ties.
Underscoring the growing Việt Nam-Japan relations across sectors, particularly economy, human resources, science-technology, and supply chain, the JICA representative vowed to do his best in promoting the relationship between the agency and the ministry. — VNS
