China and Japan held their first high-level economic dialogue in
Beijing on Saturday.
The meeting, co-chaired by Chinese Vice Premier Zeng Peiyan and
Japanese Foreign Minister Masahiko Komura, will touch upon issues
concerning macro-economic policies, energy-saving and environmental
protection, trade and investment, as well as multilateral and
regional economic cooperation.
The China-Japan high-level economic dialogue mechanism was
jointly launched by Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and then Prime
Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan during Wen's Japan trip in April.
