Deputy Minister of MARD Tran Thanh Nam stressed the forum aims to update the two sides’ enterprises, associations, sectors and localities on regulations of Vietnam and Japan related to import and export management of agro-forestry-aquaculture products. It also offers a good chance for them to share experience and seek measures to deal difficulties and boost trade promotion and agriculture investment.

According to Nam, the agriculture ministries of the two countries have built a long-term cooperation framework and memoranda of understanding on cooperation on popularizing standards and certification related to the quality of agricultural products and foodstuffs, and the development of Vietnam's rice value chain.
