At the meeting, Mr. Toshiyuki Nagasako - The leader of delegations from Parliament of Izumo told that among more than 4000 foreigners working in Izumo, there are over 300 of whom coming from Vietnam. Moreover, Japanese entrepreneurs tend to look for Vietnamese workers more than others due to the similarities between Japan and Vietnam when it comes to the will to work hard, deal with difficulties and the attitude as well as ambition to learn and gain experience. The friendship between two countries is going to be more long - lasting, especially from 2019, when Japan is going to apply many more opened policies specifically for Vietnam labor force. Taking as an example, Japan will offer a new visa for students so that Japanese businesses can find it easier to employ students directly.

PhD. Nguyen ThiAnh Dao - the Chancellor of Dong A University has always welcomed Japan delegations to come to Vietnam and gather more information in order to suggest opened policies for Vietnamese students in general, and for UDA students in particular to improve their working skills and have chances to work in Japan. In addition, they should be treated respectively and equally like a Japanese citizen. This can positively motivate them to make a good contribution to Japanese businesses instead of giving up while living in another country.

To foster the friendship, PhD. Anh Dao also recommended that Japan authorities and Japanese business association should establish a Vietnamese Students’ Association, organize Japan - Vietnam cultural festivals regularly to bridge the gap between students.
