Referring to the preparation for the construction of a nuclear power plant in Vietnam , Quan asked the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sport, Science and Technology (MEXT) to help build capacity of Vietnamese agencies involved in the project.

In terms of space cooperation, the Vietnamese minister appreciated Japan ’s support for building the Vietnamese Space Centre at the Hoa Lac Hi-tech Zone, expressing his hope that the two sides would promote cooperation in the research and application of space technology, in particular satellite technology.

On the occasion, Quan informed his host of efforts to complete procedures for the early signing of an agreement between his ministry with the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, to support joint research activities of the two countries’ universities and set up a network of leading scientists.

At a meeting with Kazuo Watanabe, Japanese Ambassador for Science and Technology Cooperation under the Japanese Foreign Ministry, Quan appraised the Japanese ministry’s cooperation in implementing activities included in the agreement on cooperation in science and technology signed between the two governments in 2006.
