In his speech, Director of China’s NDRC Mr. He Lifeng pointed out that the focus of China’s economic development has shifted from high speed to high quality; the pressures on the resources and environment are quite high and water-related ecological issues still require urgent solutions. It is hoped that China and Japan can bring their own advantages into full play in promoting green and ecological development and the integration of the industrial chain of the green industry in the two countries. China and Japan are close neighbors, and the bilateral economic and trade ties and people-to-people exchanges enjoy a profound history. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the implementation of the Reform and the Opening Up policy and the conclusion of the Treaty of Peace and Friendship between China and Japan. Constructing an environmentally-friendly society is our common dream. Therefore, the two countries should keep working together to advance the cooperation in energy conservation and environmental protection, push forward the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development of the United Nations. This Forum plays an important role in the development of the bilateral economic and technological exchanges and the pragmatic cooperation. We hope that the Forum can enhance the cooperation in China-Japan economy and trade, turn the spotlight on the new areas, technologies, models and trends of green growth, set new agenda proactively and in turn enlarge the influence of the Forum.
The Deputy Minister of the MOC Mr. Qian Keming indicated that the environment issues have become a global challenge. As the second and the third largest economies in the world, China and Japan are complementary to each other in terms of green cooperation and enjoy a broad prospect for future development. The two countries should enhance exchanges and coordination in policies, and turn market opportunities into tangible outcomes. He also expressed his expectation for the innovative bilateral cooperation in new energy, smart city and environmental improvement, the exchanges in scientific and technological achievement as well as the experience sharing in green development in the third-party market.
