Japanese enterprises can contribute to the development of IT and take part in IT expos in Viet Nam, the minister said.

Viet Nam and Japan should cooperate in administrative consultation and settlement of administrative procedures to protect legitimate rights of Vietnamese citizens in Japan and Japanese nationals in Viet Nam, she added.

Japan has remained an important economic partner, the biggest provider of official development assistance (ODA), the second biggest foreign investor and the fourth largest trading partner of Viet Nam, he stressed.

Mr. Phuc thanked Japan for its provision of ODA in almost 30 years, which, he said, has contributed remarkably to Viet Nam’s socio-economic development, hunger elimination, poverty reduction and infrastructure development.

In order to boost the bilateral extensive strategic partnership in the coming time, PM Phuc proposed Japan continue to assist the Vietnamese Government in reforming and improving efficiency of the administrative apparatus, building an e-government towards a digital government, digital economy and digital society and effectively implementing state management projects on information and communications.
