At a press conference held by China International Publishing Groupon May 17, it was announced that the 15th Beijing-Tokyo Forum will be held in the Chinese capital in October.

Since its inauguration in 2005, Beijing and Tokyo have taken turns to host the forum, which is seen as a high-level platform to further ties between the two nations.

According to Gao Anming, deputy director of China International Publishing Group, "China and Japan share many common issues. We aim to continue the good practices we have adopted through the Sino-Japanese relationship, as well as adding some new areas to focus on."

Gao also says China and Japan have to shoulder more responsibility when trade frictions between China and the US influence the entire world.

"When China welcomes the 70th anniversary of its establishment, and Japan steps into a new Reiwa era, we would like to discuss how to forge a new relationship between China and Japan," says Yuji Miyamoto, a former Japanese ambassador to China.
