Vietnamese Minister of Science and Technology Nguyen Quan has thanked Japan for cooperation in science and technology and called for more support from the country in this field, especially the nuclear sector, at separate meetings with Japanese officials within the framework of the visit to Japan by Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung.

At a meeting with Japanese Minister of Education, Culture, Sport, Science and Technology Masaharu Nakagawa on Oct. 31, Quan asked the Japanese side to reach consensus on forms of cooperation and prioritised areas to implement multilateral research activities within the framework of the e-ASIA Joint Research Forum.

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.

The Vietnamese Minister suggested Japan work closely with Vietnam to promote cooperation between research centres.
