Event Summary

 This year marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Vietnam. Throughout the period of this favorable relationship, both countries have been advancing the development of their transportation infrastructure to support the flow of people and goods. This seminar centers on Japan’s experiences which could be valuable in helping frame policies and pursuing other activities related to sustainable development and operation, particularly in the context of SDGs and climate change, for the three crucial transportation infrastructures in Vietnam: Railways (with an emphasis on high-speed routes), Ports, and Airports. It should contribute to Vietnam’s development and, at the same time, further enhance the already strong relationship between our two countries.
