Senior officials of China and Japan exchanged views on a number of economic and trade issues at the 18th regular vice ministerial negotiation between the Chinese Ministry of Commerce and the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) on Tuesday.

Chinese Vice Minister of Commerce Gao Yan and Japanese Vice-Minister for International Affairs at the METI Hirofumi Katase co-chaired the talks.

The two sides held constructive discussions on Asian infrastructure connectivity as the Chinese side gave a briefing on the Belt and Road Initiative, while the Japanese side introduced "Partnership for Quality Infrastructure."

The Chinese side also demanded that Japan should comply with its international obligations and completely quit the "analogue country" practice in anti-dumping investigations on imports of carbon steel butt-weld fittings from China.

The two sides also exchanged views on cooperation in important areas such as energy saving and environmental protection, modern service industry, intellectual property rights and automotive dealing, as well as on regional and multilateral issues such as the China-Japan-ROK free trade area, Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership and issues involving the World Trade Organization (WTO).
