Chinese, Japanese vice PMs vow to boost economic ties
Chinese Vice Prime Minister Li Keqiang has pledged to enhance dialogue with Japan on macro-economic policies in a bid to bolster the two economies, the development of the Asia-Pacific region and the recovery of world economy.
The world economic recovery was gaining momentum, but its foundation was still fragile, Li told Japanese Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Naoto Kan, who was in Beijing for the third round of dialogue between the two countries' finance ministers.
The changing world economy was also cultivating new opportunities, Li told Naoto Kan on Saturday in the Great Hall of the People, according to a press release issued on Sunday.
China would work with Japan to push forward exchanges and cooperation, properly handle sensitive issues and stimulate the development of bilateral ties, Li said.
Naoto Kan pledged to step up fiscal and economic cooperation with China to contribute to the development of bilateral ties.
