Ambassador Vu Hong Nam held an online conference with the Governor of Kagoshima Prefecture

On June 4, 2021, on the sideline of the event "Viet Nam Fair in Kagoshima", Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam in Japan held an online meeting with Governor of Kagoshima Prefecture Mr. Shiota Koichi to exchange views on strengthening the cooperation between Kagoshima and Viet Nam in the future.

At the meeting, Ambassador Vu Hong Nam thanked and appreciated the initiative by Mr. Governor Shiota to organize the event "Viet Nam Fair in Kagoshima" from June 4 to June 6, 2021 to promote Vietnamese products in the Japanese market, including fresh lychee, thus further promote economic and trade cooperation between Viet Nam and Japan as soon as the pandemic is under control.

Governor Shiota thanked Ambassador Vu Hong Nam for the support to help strengthen Kagoshima-Viet Nam relations; expressed his belief that the "Viet Nam Fair in Kagoshima" will bring a sense of nostalgia amongst Vietnamese people living, studying and working in Kagoshima in particular and Japan in general, especially those who have not been able to come back home due to covid-19. This also presented an opportunity for the people of Kagoshima to know more of Viet Nam. Governor Shiota also emphasized that Kagoshima Prefecture always considers Viet Nam as an important partner and will further strengthen the cooperation with Viet Nam in general and Hai Duong province in particular, in the areas of economic development, trade and investment, people-to-people exchange, etc. 

On this occasion, Governor Shiota  expressed his wish to invite Ambassador Vu Hong Nam to become the first International Friendship Ambassador of Kagoshima Prefecture in Asia. Ambassador Vu Hong Nam thanked and happily accepted the kind offer.
