NDO/VNA – President Tran Dai Quang, his spouse and a high-ranking Vietnamese delegation concluded a five-day State visit to Japan on June 2.

Before leaving Tokyo, the State leader and his spouse had a warm farewell meeting with the Emperor and Empress.

The President also had a meeting with the Vietnamese Embassy’s staff and the Vietnamese nationals in the East Asian country, during which he hailed the contributions made by the Vietnamese expatriates towards deepening the Vietnam-Japan cooperative ties.

He spoke highly of the Vietnamese representative organisations’ efforts to overcome all challenges in order to fulfill their tasks entrusted to them by the Party and State.

He briefed the Vietnamese nationals on the homeland’s socio-economic situation and its robust economic growth, as well as stable security and defence.

Regarding the relations with Japan, President Quang said that the country is a leading strategic partner of Vietnam in various fields. Thus, the Party and State’s consistent policy is to develop the extensive strategic ties with Japan.

After 45 years of diplomatic relations, both nations have enjoyed fruitful relationships with regular high-ranking and people-to people exchanges, increasing political trust, and enhanced collaboration in economy, trade, investment, education, tourism and defence.

President Quang said his State visit to Japan was a success.

During his stay, he met with the Emperor, held talks with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and had meetings with the political and economic leaders of Japan. He delivered a speech at a trade promotion conference which drew the participation of 600 enterprises from both sides. Also, he attended a ceremony to mark the 45th anniversary of the bilateral relations.

He asked the Vietnamese Embassy and other representative organisations to further their efforts to carry out the agreements inked between the two leaders, as well as attracting ODA and FDI capital, accelerating the transfer of technology and fostering collaboration in the fields with potential.

The embassy should carry out sound citizen protection measures and the Vietnamese community must comply with the regulations in the host country, he said.

The State leader also expressed his hope that the Vietnamese nationals would work to contribute more to the Vietnam-Japan relations.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Japan Nguyen Quoc Cuong affirmed that the embassy always does its utmost to foster the extensive strategic ties between the two countries.
