China and Japan to improve energy co-operation

Apr 13, 1998 02:00 AM

Some 50 government officials, business people and scholars from China and Japan recently met on energy and environmental issues and concluded with an agreement to further promote bilateral personnel and academic exchanges in these areas.
During the two-day meeting, the first of its kind, the participants also agreed that the two countries should make efforts to achieve energy security in East Asia and to curb increases in energy consumption, conference officials said.
They also pointed to the need for Japan to further co-operate with China in desulphurizing emissions from coal-burning factories and power plants. Coal still supplies 75 % of China's energy.
Ye Oing, former minister of the State Development Planning Commission, led the Chinese side, while Yasuhiko Torii, president of Keio University, headed the Japanese delegation.
