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.
