Akishino visited Vietnam in 1999 and 2021.

There is high political trust between Vietnam and Japan and they have increasingly developed closer ties in the Asia-Pacific region and share common views on many regional and international issues, according to the ministry.

Japan is Vietnam's leading economic partner: It is the biggest provider of official development aid, second largest employer of Vietnamese labor, third biggest investor and tourism market, and fourth biggest trade partner.

Bilateral trade was worth nearly US$48 billion last year, with Vietnam's exports amounting to $24.2 billion.

They have signed a slew of bilateral and multilateral free trade agreements.
