NHK reported this morning on the Japan-China high-level economic dialogue held in Beijing last night. The Japanese side was represented by six cabinet ministers led by Foreign Minister Kono, various state ministers, parliamentary vice ministers, and assistants to the prime minister, while the Chinese team was led by Foreign Minister Wang Yi. The two sides underscored the improvement in bilateral relations and effectively agreed to lift the ban on Japanese beef exports imposed after the Fukushima nuclear accident in 2011. They discussed trade and investment based on international rules and improvement of the business environment. The Japanese side took issue with China’s forcing foreign companies to transfer their technology to Chinese entities and asked for stronger measures to protect intellectual property, while China requested fair treatment for Huawei in Japan’s 5G services as well as Japan’s cooperation in exploring Southeast Asian markets and participation in the Belt and Road initiative.
