HÀ NỘI — Cultural exchanges play an important role in boosting Việt Nam-Japan relations, Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc told Special Advisor to the Japanese Cabinet Isao Iijima. 

Meeting Iijima in Hà Nội yesterday, Phúc expressed hope that Japan will continue leading in terms of foreign direct investment in Viet Nam, particularly in the supporting industry, manufacturing, renewable energy and hi-tech agriculture. 

He lauded Japan’s ongoing Sakura Blossom Festival in Việt Nam to mark the 45th founding anniversary of diplomatic ties, saying such cultural exchange activities play a significant role in enhancing bilateral ties.

Iijima hoped that there will be more Japanese sakura and Vietnamese apricot blossom festivals to promote cultural exchanges between the two nations. — VNS
