At the meeting

The CSB 8004 is a multifunctional vessel and meets all international standards for vessels of its kind. The ship is tasked with search and rescue (SAR) of fishermen at sea, patrols, and other activities serving the protection of security and Vietnam’s sovereignty over its waters and continental shelf.

The journey to Japan is slated for late September. During the event, the Vietnamese vessel will pay a visit to the 5th Regional Coast Guard Headquarters, join seminars and SAR exercises at sea, and pay courtesy calls on Japanese authorities, to name but a few.

In his speech, Major General Vu Trung Kien underlined that the visit of the CSB 8004 to Japan is one of major external affairs activities by the Vietnam Coast Guard in 2023, towards the 50th founding anniversary of the Vietnam - Japan relations.
