Vietnam’s Ministry of Information and Communications and Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications signed co-operation documents in Hanoi on September 14.
The documents included a framework agreement on co-operation between the two ministries, a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on co-operation in the field of radio frequencies, a co-operation document in the field of postal services, a consultancy contract on postal services between Vietnam Post and Japan Post and a business contract between Vietnam Post and Japan’s Hitachi Limited Company and Sumitomo Mitsui bank.
Addressing the signing ceremony, Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Minh Hong affirmed that Vietnam and Japan are comprehensive partners in various fields, particularly in information and communications.
He added that the co-operation between State management agencies and enterprises from the two countries had significantly contributed to the development of technology and information, postal services and telecommunications, power radio frequency and information security in Vietnam over the recent times.
The recently signed documents would continue to promote the comprehensive co-operation between the two ministries in the time ahead, contributing to enhancing Vietnam–Japan strategic co-operation, noted the Deputy Minister.
Japanese Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications Jiro Akama also expressed his hope that by signing co-operation documents, co-operation in the field of information and communications between the two countries would be developed and deepened.
The co-operation agreements would create favourable conditions for agencies under the two ministries as well as Vietnamese and Japanese information and communications enterprises to develop their operations.
