TOKYO – Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will send a larger delegation than a year ago to hold economic talks with senior Chinese officials, a government representative said Friday.
A four-member delegation comprising Cabinet members took part in the previous round of high-level economic dialogue held in last April.
For the upcoming round of talks, Abe will send six members of his cabinet to Beijing, the government official said, as bilateral relations between the two neighbors have improved recently.
Foreign Minister Taro Kono is set to head the delegation.
The other member of the delegation are: Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Hiroshige Seko; Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Keiichi Ishii; Regulatory Reform Minister Satsuki Katayama; Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Takamori Yoshikawa; and Environment Minister Yoshiaki Harada, the government official said.
The upcoming high-level economic dialogue to be held between the two countries will be the fifth of its kind since such official talks began in 2007.
