    The visit to Japan successful: says PM Nguyen Tan Dung
    21:25 | 22/10/2006
    The five-day official visit to Japan by a high-level Vietnamese delegation was successful. The two countries agreed to develop their friendly and cooperative relations into the strategic partnership for prosperity of the two nations as well as for peace, stability and development in the region and the world.
    Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung who led the delegation made the affirmation during an interview with VOV upon his return to Hanoi from Osaka on October 22, concluding his official visit to Japan at the invitation of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
    Mr Dung said he and Japanese leaders reached high consensus on various areas to foster bilateral ties. To boost bilateral trade exchanges, Mr Dung said Vietnam and Japan agreed to begin negotiations on the Vietnam-Japan Free Trade Agreement soon and speed up the implementation of the second phase of the Vietnam-Japan Joint Initiative to improve Vietnam’s investment environment. They pledged to raise two-way trade value to US$15 billion by 2010 from the current US$8.5 billion. They agreed to boost tourism cooperation and establish bilateral cultural forums to cement the spiritual foundation in the friendly and cooperative relations between Vietnam and Japan.
    Mr Dung said during the visit he met with many Japanese politicians and leaders of Japan’s leading economic groups who highly valued Vietnam’s achievements in various areas as well as the fruitful development in bilateral cooperation. However, they said bilateral cooperation has not matched the two countries’ potential. They expressed their desire to boost cooperation with Vietnam in investment, trade, tourism, services, science and technology, education and training, labour and recruitment of Vietnamese trainees.
    Notably, Japan pledged to maintain and increase its official development assistance (ODA) to Vietnam to develop socio-economic infrastructure facilities. Top priority will be given to the Trans-national Express Railway Line project, the Trans-national Highway project and a project to develop infrastructure facilities in Hoa Lac High-Tech Zone to attract Japanese investors.
