    FUKUOKA, Japan, Dec. 13 (Xinhua) -- China-Japan relations have improved steadily this year with expanded consensus and increased mutual trust, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said here Saturday during a meeting with his Japanese counterpart Taro Aso.

    They are in Fukuoka to attend a trilateral meeting among leaders from China, Japan and South Korea.

    The year 2008 marked the 30th anniversary of the signing of theChina-Japan Treaty of Peace and Friendship, and was also observed as the China-Japan friendly exchange year for the youth, which have further cemented the bonds of friendship between the two peoples, said Wen.

    The two sides should handle bilateral relations from strategic and long-term perspectives and boost exchanges among both high-ranking officials and the general public, he said.

    China is willing to make joint efforts with Japan to continue to develop the strategic and mutually beneficial ties in a healthy and stable manner, to benefit the peoples of the two countries and other nations in the region as well, Wen said.

    Noting that both China and Japan are influential economies in the world, the Chinese leader said the two are also important trading and investment partners for each other.

    The two sides should maintain their high-level economic dialogue mechanism, strengthen coordination in macroeconomic policies and adopt pragmatic measures to maintain a steady growth in bilateral trade and investment, and tackle the international financial crisis hand-in-hand, he added.

    The Chinese premier also suggested that the two sides actively facilitate regional cooperation in East Asia and on international financial reform, to make due contribution to the sound and stable development of the Asian and world economy.

    Prime Minister Aso, for his part, said that Japan is satisfied with the sound development of bilateral ties.

    Japan is willing to continue the frequent high-level exchanges, deepen mutual political trust, properly settle differences and promote dialogue and cooperation with China in such fields as economy and trade, he added.

    Japan is ready to strengthen cooperation and coordination with China in tackling the international financial crisis as it is of great importance to regional financial stability and economic development, the Japanese leader said.
