Speaking at the meeting, Minister Counsellor Nguyen Phuong Hong, on behalf of the Vietnamese Embassy in Japan, appreciated the positive activities of VYSA over the past year and desired the VYSA continue to be a central factor to help Vietnamese youth and students in Japan strengthen solidarity and mutual support in study, research and in daily life.

Minister Counsellor Nguyen Phuong Hong said the embassy would continue to support activities of VYSA in the coming time and wish the congress success.

Secretary of Foreign Office of Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Kyoshi Shimonishi, said Vietnam-Japan relations are developing very well with the exchange of visits by leaders of the two countries, especially in the context of the two countries celebrating the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relations.

According Mr. Shimonishi, in addition to strengthening high-level exchanges, Japan also wants to promote people-to-people exchanges and he wanted to have more Vietnamese students coming to Japan to study to acquire knowledge, advanced technology, and understanding about the culture and people of Japan, and then return to Vietnam to actively contribute to building the country and become a bridge to strengthen exchanges between the two peoples of the two countries.

At the congress, former Chairwoman of VYSA Nguyen Thi Thu Hong announced the results of the vote for the executive committee for the 2013-2014 term and Ms. Le Minh Ngoc is the chairwoman.
