Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has arrived in Tokyo, beginning his official visit to Japan from Monday to Thursday.

Per an invitation from his counterpart Kishida Fumio, Chinh is expected to meet Kishida and leaders of Japan’s House of Representatives and House of Councilors, attend an investment promotion conference and witness the signings of several agreements between the two countries, among other activities.

His delegation includes several ministers from multiple fields and other high-ranking officials.

Vietnam and Japan established diplomatic relations since 1973. Japan is one of Vietnam's foremost economic partners, the biggest ODA contributor, the second largest investor and fourth largest trade partner.

Japan is considering allowing foreign workers, including those from Vietnam, to stay there indefinitely and bring their loved ones with them starting 2022.
