Ho Chi Minh City administration will work closely with Japanese partners to successfully organise the eighth Japan-Vietnam Festival in 2023, with an aim of putting young people at the centre of festival activities, Phan Van Mai, Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee said.

He made the commitment at a meeting with Takebe Tsutomu, Special Advisor to the Japan-Vietnam Friendship Parliamentary Alliance (JVFPA) on the organisation of the event.

Mai appreciated ideas raised by Takebe, who is head of Japan-Vietnam Festival organising committee, regarding the matter, saying that in 2023, it is necessary to well organise activities to celebrate the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Japan to mark the past journey and open a new one with deeper and higher cooperation and trust.

He expressed his gratitude for the love, sharing and companionship of the people and government of Japan, including the JVFPA and Takebe for Vietnam. In particular, during the recent outbreak of COVID-19, Vietnam received sharing of experience in pandemic prevention and help with vaccines and medical equipment from Japan.

For his part, Takebe said that in 2021, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the seventh Japan-Vietnam Festival was successfully held with the attendance of 240,000 people. 

He emphasised that Japan wants the festival to become a festival of youth, attracting the participation of the young people of the two countries, thus enhancing their exchange and mutual understanding. The eighth Japan-Vietnam festival is expected to become a symbol of the two countries' victory over the COVID-19 pandemic as well as a symbol of peace and towards the world’s future./.
