Special Advisor to the Japan–Vietnam Friendship Parliamentary Alliance Takebe Tsutomu has expressed interest in providing Vietnam with high-quality human resources training, with the establishment of the Japan–Vietnam University as a focus.

Meeting with President of the Vietnam–Japan Friendship Parliamentary Alliance To Huy Rua in Hanoi on November 14, Tsutomu vowed to do his best to develop both nations’ ties in his new position.

Rua, who is also a Politburo member and Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee, said that Vietnam wishes for stronger cooperation with Japan, especially in the perfection of market economy regulations, and human resources and infrastructure development.

He thanked Tsutomu, who used to be the General Secretary of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) in Japan, for his active contributions to the friendship between the two ruling parties, legislatures and peoples.
The host also spoke highly of joint activities during the 2013 Vietnam–Japan Friendship Year to celebrate the 40th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties.-VNA
