Top legislator hosts President of Japan's Constitutional Democratic Party
VGP - National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue hosted a reception for President of the Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan (CDP) Izumi Kenta in Ha Noi on August 30.
At the reception, the top Vietnamese legislator said that Viet Nam always attaches importance to enhancing relations with Japan through all channels, including Party, State, ministries, sectors, locality-to-locality and people-to-people exchanges, and business connections.
For his part, President Izumi Kenta lauded Viet Nam's dynamic development, saying that the CDP's prioritized direction is to create a stable and safe environment for workers, including Vietnamese in Japan.
He affirmed the stance of the party and himself in continuing to support the enhancement of the countries' cooperation as well as Viet Nam's goals to become an upper middle-income developing country with a modern industrial base by 2030 and a developed and high-income one by 2045 and to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
Bot sides agreed that the two countries need to strengthen joint work in high technology, climate change adaptation, and socio-economic development.
They emphasized the importance of maintaining peace and stability and resolving disputes through peaceful means based on international law, including the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS 1982).
NA Chairman Vuong expressed his hope the CDP would support collaboration between the Vietnamese and Japanese legislative bodies, mainly their exchange of high-level delegations, friendship parliamentary groups, young parliamentarians, and women parliamentarians.
Izumi said Japan planned to send a delegation to the ninth Global Conference of Young Parliamentarians to be hosted by Viet Nam in mid-September./.
