Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on Saturday pledged to work with the Japanese government to promote the constant development of bilateral strategic and mutually beneficial relations.
"We should seize the opportunities to enhance coordination and cooperation and properly resolve relevant problems through bilateral, regional and international cooperation mechanisms," Wen said when meeting with Japanese Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Naoto Kan.
Wen said the world now faced a critical period of coping with the international financial crisis, and it was very important for the Asian economies to recover first.
Japan had advanced technology in energy-saving environmental protection, green economy, modern manufacturing and services, and China had a huge market demand, he noted.
Wen hoped the companies from both sides would draw on their respective strengths, expand trade and mutual investment and promote new growth.
Kan applauded China's effective measures to cope with the international financial crisis, saying that the Japanese government attached great importance to the Japan-China strategic and mutually beneficial relationship.
Japan would increase cooperation with China in the process of implementing new growth strategies, to create a win-win situation and achieve mutual benefit, Kan noted.
Kan was here to attend the third round of dialogue between the two countries' finance ministers in Beijing on Saturday.
China and Japan initiated the dialogue between finance ministers in Beijing in March 2006. The second round of dialogue was held in Tokyo in March 2008. Source:Xinhua
