NA Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue is in Vienna to attend the fifth World Conference of Speakers of Parliament (WCSP5).

Mr. Hue thanked Japan for its provision of nearly 3 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines for Vietnam. He called on Japan to further help Vietnam with medical supplies and unused COVID-19 vaccines and consider cooperation in COVID-19 vaccine and drug production.

He suggested Japan pay more attention to the Vietnamese community in the country and encourage Japanese firms to increase their investments in Vietnam.

Ms. Santo thanked Vietnam for presenting medical masks to Japan last year and said she hopes for more activities to step up cooperation and exchanges between people of the two countries, especially the young.

The two leaders affirmed Vietnam and Japan will continue to support each other in pandemic containment and post-pandemic recovery, boost collaboration between legislative agencies and carry forward the role of friendship parliamentarians’ groups to promote cooperation initiatives.

They also consented to exchange official visits when conditions permit.
