At a reception for the Japanese guests in Hanoi on Friday, PM Chinh affirmed that Vietnam is determined to build an independent and self-reliant economy that actively integrates into the world, with priority given to three strategic breakthroughs: institutional reform, infrastructure construction and improvement, and enhancement of human resources.
He suggested Toshihiro prompt the Japanese Government to continue providing new-generation ODA for Vietnam in strategic infrastructure construction, and wished that Japanese investors would increase their investment in Vietnam in the spirit of getting mutual benefits, sharing risks and harmonizing interests.

The PM proposed Japan assists Vietnam in increasing the value chain of agricultural products through investment and technology transfer, seed selection and processing, preservation; promoting the import of Vietnamese agricultural products, opening the market for fruits such as green-skin pomelo in Japan.
Toshihiro, for his part, said his visit will contribute to promoting economic, agricultural, and labor cooperation and people-to-people exchanges between the two countries.
The two leaders agreed to further comprehensively enhance bilateral exchanges and cooperation, especially between the two legislatures, parliamentarians and people. They also vowed to continue reinforcing economic, trade, investment and tourism cooperation, locality-to-locality and people-to-people exchanges, particularly between young generations, as well as work closely together at multilateral forums, and on global and regional issues of shared concern.
