The new Japanese Ambassador, for his part, congratulated Vietnam on successfully fighting the pandemic. He expressed his belief that once COVID-19 is under control worldwide, Vietnam will become an attractive business destination.

He added that he has also received the Vietnamese Government’s support to bring Japanese experts to Vietnam.

The diplomat wished that the two nations would further boost the medical cooperation program and facilitate Vietnamese trainees’ entry into Japan, thus tightening bilateral bonds.

PM Phuc informed the guest that the control of the pandemic has helped Vietnam restore its socio-economic development in the “new normal” condition.

He proposed that both sides step up bilateral cooperation in the post-COVID-19 period, including loosening immigration regulations.

Vietnam stays ready to welcome Japanese experts and investors to the country as well as send its trainees to Japan, with suitable quarantine measures, he said.

Noting that the Vietnamese legislature ratified the European Union – Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) and the EU-Vietnam Investment Protection Agreement (EVIPA), the PM said Vietnam supports the promotion of high-quality capital flows to carry its economy forward.

He asked the ambassador to encourage Japanese firms to expand operations in Vietnam, especially in high-tech agriculture, processing and support industries, and technological transfer.
