President Vo Van Thuong speaks at the meeting with scientists, intellectuals, and representatives of generations of Vietnamese people in Japan on November 27.

According to Vietnamese Ambassador to Japan Pham Quang Hieu, Japanese political parties all attach great importance to the bilateral relations, and Japanese investors' confidence in Vietnam's investment environment has significantly improved. 

The embassy has focused on measures to further strengthen economic cooperation between Vietnam and Japan, especially connecting cooperation among localities of the two countries, he said.

According to the diplomat, the number of young Vietnamese intellectuals in Japan has increased in recent times, and they want to make more contribution to the homeland and serve as a bridge to promote the bilateral relations.

At a meeting with scientists, intellectuals, and representatives of generations of Vietnamese people in Japan, President Thuong said that the contribution of outstanding Vietnamese intellectuals have actively supported the Vietnamese community in Japan and helped strengthen the relations between the two countries.

He affirmed that the Party and State always value talented people and intellectuals, considering them a key and decisive force for the country’s development.

The President welcomed leading Vietnamese scientists working at Japanese universities who have trained graduate students and connected scholarships for Vietnamese students, thus helping to train high-quality human resources for the home country.

He called on overseas Vietnamese in Japan to make more contribution to the host country, and step up the bilateral relations, adding that this is the best foundation to maintain and promote the Vietnam-Japan relations.
