In his remarks, Ambassador Vu Hong Nam reviewed Vietnam’s outstanding achievements since 1975. Mentioning Vietnam-Japan relations, he hailed Japan as Vietnam’s important partner in the fields of economy, trade and investment, with significant contributions to socio-economic development in the Southeast Asian country.

At the event, delegates were introduced to Vietnam’s business climate and investment policies, the Vietnam-Japan ties, Japan’s policies to cope with population aging, Japan’s satellite research operations, and cooperation between Vietnam and Japan in developing the Micro Dragon satellite.

On the sidelines of the conference, Ahmed Araita Ali, Djibouti Ambassador to Japan cum Vietnam, said that the event offered a good chance for him to gain better insight into Vietnam’s recent economic achievements.
