Since the Joint Statement on the establishment of a comprehensive strategic partnership for peace and prosperity in Asia between the Prime Ministers of the two countries in March 2014, the relationship between Vietnam and Japan has been strengthened and developed to a new level. Simultaneously, the expectation of Vietnam on bilateral aid from Japan - the top ODA sponsor to Vietnam - is increasing. The 10-year Socio-Economic Development Strategy (2011-2020) of Vietnam places priority in completing institutional systems, human resource development and modern infrastructure system development. To assist Vietnam in realizing its goal of becoming a modern industrialized country by 2020, JICA is cooperating with Japanese industrial manufacturers, educational organizations, municipalities, NGOs, and others to provide comprehensive assistance for Vietnam's nation building with a fair society through promoting economic growth, strengthening international competitiveness, supporting vulnerable groups and enhancing governance.
