YOKOHAMA – Wednesday, august 28 2019
Algeria and Japan seek to develop their cooperation and enhance it up to the highest level in the best interest of the two countries, Prime Minister Noureddine Bedoui said Wednesday in Yokohama, Japan.
In a statement to the press, following his discussions with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, on the sidelines of the 7th Tokyo International Conference on Africa Development (TICAD 7), Bedoui said that the “future of relations between Algeria and Japan will be prosperous, given the current level of cooperation.”
The Premier also expressed the strong willingness of the two countries to boost their cooperation to the highest level with the new momentum in Algeria and owing to its natural resources and potentialities.
The discussions were an opportunity for both sides to underline the need to develop partnership, which reached a good level in 1970s but declined in early 90s, added Bedoui.
In this regard, the Premier stressed the need to set up a joint economic committee, and develop it into an intergovernmental commission, in line with the aspirations of the two countries, especially given the established experience of Japan in several fields, such as renewable energy, natural disaster management and human resources development.
“Algeria is using information and communication technologies (ICTs) in training trainers in several specialities,” he added.
