Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has suggested Vietnam and Japan focus on addressing difficulties and boosting trade promotion to increase Vietnamese agricultural and aquatic exports to Japan.

Phuc made the recommendation at a reception in Hanoi on March 19 for Japanese Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Motoo Hayashi.

Welcoming the minister and his delegation to attend the first meeting of the Vietnam-Japan Joint Committee on Industrial, Trade and Energy Cooperation with the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Deputy PM expressed his belief that the meeting will be a success and contribute practically to the development of the bilateral economic and trade ties.

He asked Japan to help Vietnam develop the support industry, build a nuclear power plant in Ninh Thuan, and improve the quality of its human resources.

For his part, Hayashi said he hopes that the two countries will intensify economic, trade and energy cooperation.

The two sides should early hold policy dialogues related to garment and textiles, introduce technologies to ensure safety for nuclear power plants, and focus on developing human resources, he suggested.
