Vietnam believes the participation of Japan, one of the big economies
and having an important role in the Asia-Pacific region and the world,
will contribute to increasing cooperation potential and the
attractiveness of the Trans-Pacific Partnership
(TPP), as well as intensifying
multi-level and mutually beneficial cooperation among countries in the
region.

So said Foreign Ministry Spokesman Luong
Thanh Nghi on March 15 in reply to a question on Vietnam’s viewpoint
of Japan’s official participation in the negotiation process.

This will also create a
new cooperation framework for and further deepen the relationship
between Vietnam and Japan, which is seeing good development, said
Nghi, adding that Vietnam supported Japan’s participation at an
early date. -VNA
