Hanoi (VNA) – Young legislators from
Vietnam and Japan met in Hanoi on August 22 to share experience in their work
and discuss regional and global issues of common concern.
At the meeting, Chairman of the Group of Vietnam’s Young National Assembly
Deputies Le Quoc Phong said the regular organisation of exchange activities
between the two countries’ parliaments will help youngsters better their understanding
of Vietnam-Japan sound relations, thus contributing to developing the bilateral
rapports at present and in the future.
The event creates an opportunity for the Vietnamese
and Japanese young parliamentarians to show friendship and raise their
responsibilities for important issues in their nations as well as in the
Asian-Pacific region, he added.
Keisuke Suzuki, head of the Youth Division of
Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party,
said the two sides had a chance to share common
challenges in environment, finance, technology, urban and rural connectivity in
the development process.
Participants suggested creating more favourable
conditions for youths to increase their involvement in political affairs and
empowering youngsters and women to engage in political activities.
They expressed hope to contribute their voice to
the Government’s policy making in education and career orientation.
This is the third time the Youth Division of
Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party has visited Vietnam after their trips in 2013
