However, this role has not been fully and effectively implemented. Therefore, Vietnam needs to promote cooperation to bring into full play the Commission's active role in the use, management and protection of water resources.

Vietnam - Japan economic relations in the early years of the 21st century

(LLCT) - In the early years of the 21st century, the economic relationship between Vietnam and Japan has achieved important results in terms of trade, foreign direct investment (FDI), and official development assistance (ODA), helping creating employment and boosting Vietnam’s economic growth. However, this relationship is still modest compared to the potential of each party.

Therefore, the two countries should continue to concretize a "Bilateral strategic partnership for peace and prosperity in Asia" in the economic field: combining Vietnam's great potential of labor and natural resources with Japan's advantages in modern equipment, technology, and capital. We need to continue promoting cooperation, especially in high-tech, manufacturing, and supporting industries.
