At the meeting, Suga considered the trip to Vietnam and Indonesia of great importance in promoting an open and free Indo-Pacific region, with centrally-placed ASEAN playing a key role in the initiative.

Suga’s plan to visit Vietnam and Indonesia comes as Japan seeks to enhance relations with ASEAN member nations.

His predecessor, Shinzo Abe, also chose Vietnam and Indonesia among the destinations for his first foreign trip when he began his second term in December 2012.

Suga, 71, became prime minister after winning a parliamentary vote, taking over from Abe, who resigned over health issues along with his cabinet.

He was considered Abe’s right hand, serving as chief cabinet secretary for eight years.
