President Tran Dai Quang has urged the Japanese House of Representatives (lower house) and the National Assembly of Vietnam to intensify the sharing of legislative experience and further promote their role in the development of relations between the two countries.

He said the two sides should closely coordinate and support each other at regional and international forums such as the Asia-Pacific Parliamentary Forum and the Inter-Parliamentary Union. The leader applauded Japan’s continued support for Vietnam’s socio-economic development through their official development assistance (ODA).

He called on the Japanese lower house to pay greater attention to the exchanges between the ministries, agencies and localities of the two countries.

Vietnam attaches significant importance to the extensive strategic partnership with Japan and regards the country as a leading and long-term partner, President Quang said, expressing his hope for a more comprehensive and deeper Vietnam-Japan relationship, for the sake of the two countries’ people, and for peace, stability, cooperation and development in the region and around the world.

For his part, Oshima expressed his delight at the outstanding and practical developments of the extensive strategic partnership over the past time, emphasising the significance of the high-level visits by the two countries’ leaders in 2017.

He said he was impressed by Vietnam’s active developments during his official visit to the country in May 2017.

The House of Representatives and the House of Councillors are ready to step up the exchanges between Vietnamese and Japanese parliamentarians, contributing to promoting to the extensive strategic partnership in all spheres, he said.

The Speaker pledges to do his utmost, together with the lower house, to advance the bilateral ties to a new height.

Oshima shared President Quang’s views on the need to maintain visits of all-level delegations and the friendly exchanges between the two legislative bodies, especially young parliamentarians, considering this as a foundation to ensure political trust and help promote bilateral links in economy, trade, investment, culture, health care, national defence and security.
