NHK reported that Japan and China are holding their first high-level economic dialogue in eight years in Tokyo today. Kono was quoted as saying at the beginning of the dialogue: “The situation surrounding the global economy has been changing drastically, and there are more roles to be played by both Japan and China. We need to develop a new perspective and think about how we can cooperate and collaborate.” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang reportedly said: “I am convinced that the dialogue will play a positive role in the improvement and development of the bilateral relationship and give new momentum to our economic cooperation.” The network said the dialogue will continue until this afternoon, adding that the two sides are expected to discuss cooperation with China’s “One Belt, One Road” initiative and stronger economic cooperation, and exchange views on the recent tariff measures by the Trump administration.
