Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has asked the Japanese government for further assistance in developing an e-government and cyber security during his talk with Japanese Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications Sanae Takaichi.

The meeting took place in Hanoi on Thursday evening, as part of Minister Takaichi’s visit to Vietnam from January 8 to 10.

During the conversation, PM Phuc stated that the Vietnam-Japan extensive strategic partnership is developing comprehensively, while political trust has been enhanced in many aspects.

Japan has remained an important economic partner, the biggest provider of official development assistance (ODA), the second biggest foreign investor, and the fourth largest trading partner of Vietnam, he stressed.

The premier thanked Japan for its provision of ODA in the past 30 years, which has contributed remarkably to Vietnam’s socio-economic development, hunger elimination, poverty reduction, and infrastructural development.

To boost the bilateral extensive strategic partnership, PM Phuc asked Japan to continue supporting the Vietnamese government in reforming and improving the efficiency of its administrative apparatus, building an e-government toward a digital government, digital economy and digital society, and effectively implementing state management projects on information and communications.

According to Minister Takaichi, the Japanese Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications and the Vietnamese Ministry of Information and Communications have signed a cooperation agreement, opening up a new page for partnership in the fields of post, information, and communications.

Japan stands ready to cooperate and share experience with Vietnam in developing cyber security and applying information technology in statistical activities, she said.

Japanese enterprises can contribute to the development of information technology and take part in IT expos in Vietnam, the minister said.
