27 October, 2018, 18:46
Taiwan-Japan Relations Association Deputy Secretary-General Hsiesh Bor-huei (謝柏輝) has said the foreign ministry is paying close attention to Abe's visit.
Strategically, Japan is also seeking to position itself in the region as a counterforce to China.
Japanese officials reaffirmed Friday that it would not compromise or back down on issues including China's human rights record.
Abe said on Friday that bilateral relations with China are at an "historic turning point" and that he expects new possibilities in industries such as infrastructure, logistics, healthcare and finance.
Mr Abe said their two countries were playing "an indispensable role in the economic development of not just Asia but the world".
Abe's visit highlights the improvement in ties after they hit a low in 2012 during a dispute over East China Sea islands controlled by key US ally Japan but claimed by China. Then they will visit a company which is a leading manufacturer of factory automation, Gokhale said, adding Abe has taken personal interests in working out the programme for Modi's visit.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe arrived in Beijing on Thursday as both countries try to fix ties that have been riven by disputes over territory, military expansion in the Pacific and World War II history.
As China rapidly modernizes its military, Japan remains wary of its strategic intent.
Japanese firms including big auto companies like Toyota hope to see normalised ties with China so they can compete with USA and European rivals, while Beijing expects Tokyo's endorsement of its ambitious Belt and Road programme, an initiative that Chinese President Xi Jinping hopes will further boost trade and transport links with other countries.
"Though the United States is quite an influential factor in China-Japan ties, the effect is limited", the Global Times newspaper said in an editorial.
Abe told Li that Japan will end official development assistance to China, which Tokyo has continued since the year after the two countries signed the bilateral Treaty of Peace and Friendship in 1978, after implementing a new assistance program this fiscal year. The last such visit was in late 2011.
"We have set up a new mechanism of cooperation between China and Japan in third party markets". "Despite being proud Japanese, I think Mr. Abe is also a very pragmatic politician", Huang Jing, Dean of global and Regional Studies Center at the Beijing Language and Culture University told The Hindu.
Abe said he hopes to use his visit as an opportunity to boost ties between the two countries and enter a new phase of relations - moving from competition to cooperation.
Meanwhile, Japan has rich experience in dealing with issues such as environmental pollution and population aging, which can provide reference for China's further reform and opening-up, he said.
Hu Lingyuan, director of the Center for Japanese Studies at China's Fudan University, said Trump's trade policy had contributed to closer Sino-Japanese ties.
China's nationalistic Global Times said in an editorial that "though the USA is quite an influential factor in China-Japan ties, the effect is limited".
In the past year, China has stepped up its outreach to Japan and others as it locked horns over trade with the United States. Mr. Abe said that Tokyo and Beijing will "fulfill responsibilities" for peace and stability in East Asia.
The visit, which featured Japanese flags hung in the heart of Beijing, marks a dramatic outward improvement in ties from six years ago.
