He made the remarks at a reception hosted by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc in Ha Noi on May 20.

For his part, the PM assured his guest that the Vietnamese Government will create favorable conditions for the Japanese investors to launch operation in Viet Nam, this enhancing cooperative relations between the two Governments and people.

He appraised the development in the two nations' relations in all fields, expressing his hope that Japan will make active contributions to the success of the 23rd meeting of the APEC Ministers Responsible for Trade.
