OERI Chief: Japanese Prime Minister to explore Vietnam’s experience in Covid-19 control

The Director of Japan's Viet Nam Economic Research Institute, Hiroyuki Moribe, told the Vietnam News Agency that the Japanese Prime Minister’s selection of Vietnam in his first overseas tour after taking office was because of Asia’s and the ASEAN’s strongest growth in the world and the Prime Minister’s commitment to promoting the Indian-Pacific Ocean’s open and free initiative by former Prime Minister Abe.

Mr Moribe said Vietnam is a key partner in Japan’s foreign policy in Asia. The visit is expected to boost Japanese investment in Vietnam, one of very few countries with positive growth rate in the context of Covid-19 this year. He said Japan could draw lessons from Vietnam in this regard. He expected a new wave of Japanese investment in Vietnam, which may create spin-off effects for other regional and European companies to come and look for investment opportunities.
