HÀ NỘI – President Trần Đại Quang yesterday received the Việt Nam-Japan Special Ambassador Ryotaro Sugi, who is on a visit to Việt Nam.
The President highly appreciated the ambassador’s love for Việt Nam and his meaningful activities, especially in culture, art, people-to-people exchanges and humanitarian aid to promote bilateral ties in the past 30 years.
Highlighting the strong and comprehensive development in the bilateral relationship, especially after the two countries’ relationship was upgraded to “Deep and extensive strategic partners for peace and prosperity in Asia” in 2014, the President reaffirmed that Japan is one of Việt Nam’s leading and long-term partners.
Ambassador Ryotaro Sugi congratulated President Quang on being elected as head of the State of Việt Nam and informed the President that during this visit, he held working sessions with the Ministry of Planning and Investment to step up the implementation of Japan’s aid in the form of equipment provision to the firefighting force.
The ambassador said during the visit, he is being accompanied by some firms operating in the fields of food and agriculture which want to co-operate with Vietnamese partners.
He also proposed expanding partnership in training and education, tourism and people-to-people exchanges to boost mutual understanding. – VNS
