BEIJING (Kyodo) -- The Japan Business Federation and Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi agreed Thursday the two countries should expand economic ties despite damage in Japan from the March 11 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis.

China "is convinced that Japan will overcome (damage) from the quake and tsunami and a nuclear accident" sparked by the disaster, Yang was quoted as telling a delegation of the business lobby known as Nippon Keidanren during a meeting in Beijing.

"It is important that the two countries will not stagnate exchanges," Yang was quoted as saying by a Keidanren official.

In a separate meeting, senior Communist Party of China official Li Yuanchao told the Keidanren delegation that China "truly hopes for Japan's economic recovery because the two countries have strong economic interdependence," the Keidanren official said.

Li, head of the party's Organization Department, was quoted as saying an automobile plant and electronic factory he inspected recently reported difficulty in parts procurement apparently due to suspension of production of auto parts and electronic components in affected areas in northeastern Japan.

China perceives Japan as a key partner in developing new energy, emission-free energy and a "green" economy as Beijing's 2011-2015 development plan calls for higher energy efficiency and an environmentally friendly development pattern in pursuit of stable economic growth, Li was quoted as saying.

In the talks with Yang, Keidanren Chairman Hiromasa Yonekura, who leads the delegation, asked that China ease what Japan sees as excessively strict customs procedures on Japanese products because of doubts about the safety of Japanese farm produce and other products in light of continuing radioactive leaks from a damaged nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture.

Yang responded that Beijing "pays close attention to (Yonekura's) point and will respond to (the request) positively," according to the official.

The Keidanren delegation, on a three-day visit to Beijing through Friday, called for speeding up work among Japan, China and South Korea toward the signing of a trilateral free trade agreement, the official added.

Yang was quoted as saying that it is "unnatural" that the three countries do not have an FTA given the size of their economies.

china's proactive openness and frankness is just admirable.
phop
Wait till the U.S.A comes in and start firing some of those top japanese officials for being too friendly to china. Just like what the USA did in past. This is just proof that democracy governments are nothing but puppets of the very rich and powerful.

Beauty of democracy is oppositions are still allow to vote and free to protest at government.

Both China and S.Korea need Japan's parts, so it's very important for China and S.Korea to see Japan recovers quickly from disasters.

If only that were true. The way China behaved after the senkaku/diaoyu island disputes was truly regrettable, and prevents relations from normalizing to this day. It won't be until the territorial disputes are settled that China will find true peace with her neighbors.

it can't be helped when the US is involved in japan. it's my personal belief that that trawler captain was bribed by the CIA. but still china is showing a reasonable degree of patience and proactiveness today despite their odd immediate reactions then (as expected by the US no doubt but unforseen by the rest of us)

Any country with a foreign military on their land is not really soveriegn. So sad that even to this day Asians are still house slaves. The only powerful, soveriegn Asian country today is China - which is why they must be stopped according to the West.

Imperialist Japan was supported by the Western powers to keep Asia in check. I guess thw fact that the Chinese impress snubbed the British really made them mad because it showed that Asians can think for ourselves.
