She noted that bilateral relations have developed strongly across the fields in the recent past, as reflected in the regular exchange of high-level visits and close and effective coordination in regional and international issues, as well as in the productive cooperation in security-defence, economics, trade, investment, tourism, labour and people-to-people exchange.

Those outcomes can be attributable to the contribution of Ambassador Umeda, Ngan said.

She also appreciated the bridging role of the ambassador in promoting exchanges and cooperation between the two parliaments.

The NA Chairwoman thanked the Japanese diplomat for conveying Japanese businesses’ recommendations to the Vietnamese National Assembly during the process of revising and issuing new legal documents. She underlined the Japanese Embassy’s support for the implementation of a project funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to help the NA Office improve its staff members’ capacity.
