China–Japan relations - Wikipedia
The leaders of China and Japan vowed Friday to open a new chapter in their often-fraught relationship and strengthen financial and trading ties. Shinzo Abe's long-awaited trip to China brought a raft of deals, but no major breakthroughs. Abe's visit to China is part of ongoing efforts from both sides to 'renormalise' Japan–China relations through resuming high-level dialogue.
October 23, China fears American secondary economic sanctions. So while having doubts on the political attitude of Japan to China, Beijing would like to take the direction to normalize the Japan-China relationship. Japan also understands that the current economic growth of its own country is greatly influenced by the rise of the Chinese economy and even if political problems such as the Senkaku Islands are set aside, Japan should return the relationship with China to the normal state.
China is paying attention to the US how to interpret its movements and what kind of political policy US will take against China. Amidst the intersection of the two major powers of China and the US, what kind of relationship Japan will take with China is a very interesting topic. From an economic point of view, Japan wants to return a normal relationship with China, but given the political factors and US-Japan relationship, it is quite difficult for Japan to return normal relationship.

Even if the unpredictable policy of the current administration may be to blame for that, it still sends a bad message to Japan as it tends to show that Washington is maybe not as reliable an ally as in the past. In these circumstances, it only seems natural that Japan would consider associating more and more with the other big power of the region.
This may also secure a good situation in the future, in an Asia Pacific where the US is showing some signs of weakness. And now that China itself is ready to compromise in order to make allies and isolate the US, cooperation agreements could probably be reached more regularly. In short, to say it in a slightly provocative way, should we even consider the possibility of a sino-japanese alliance to the expense of the US?
Changing the article 9 or the US military status in Okinawa could change the power balance of US-Japan in the security relationship, however, the alliance would not be broken down easily. On the other hand, In the realm of economic relationship, Japan would be more close to China in the near future by seeing the trade wars of various countries with United States.
As in the article, Japan sees the important role of China for its economic growth, as well as the timing to be engaged with Chinese expansion of economic power across continents.
I am curious how the economic tie among China,Japan, and South Korea could strength Chinese anti-US leading power in the international world. Shek Tin Lok says: October 24, One thing China may possible to obtain in normalizing Sino-Japan relations is the core technology such as semiconducter. Right now China still rely on US on high tech product due to the difference in technology level. The main semiconductor manufacture in the world are US, taiwan, japan and EU.
The forced technology share imposed on foreign firm is no longer working due to the fear of foreign country. Therefore, Tokyo should try to find political solutions on diplomatic issues with Beijing to not to bother economic activities, one that Tokyo sees as a key. October 24, Currently Japan and China are fixing their relations to get closer. This is because China is suffering from economic sanctions by U.
Regarding the relation wuth China, Russia wants to keep balance because of high reliance on China in terms of economy. S and it will last for a while.
Based on these cases, Russia is tring to find breakthrough by fixing the relation with Japan that has srong tie with U. China is now facing huge challenge against its economiy from outsde. This means China cannot get along with U. S for a while Until president of U. Russia also wants to avoid too much reliance on China. Furthermore, Japan and China have territorial disputes. I think this is big obstacles for Sino-Japanese relationse and also it cannot be solved unless China and Japan get closer based on diplomatic balancing strategy because its poit is sovereingty, not diplomatic issue.
Based on these, I wonder China and Japan really can get close in terms of politics? Although contrary to the views of many, Japan holds significant negotiation leverage and should not be concerned about being left in the dust by some bilateral agreement between the US and North Korea. Despite its unexpected exclusion from the North Korea — US summit, Japan will continue to be a major presence in the Asia-Pacific region.
This confidence stems from the fact that it is a strong ally no matter what side it chooses.How Similar Are Chinese and Japanese?
The two countries are faced with uncertainty and risk in the midst of trade friction with the U. Strengthening economic ties between Japan and China would benefit both countries.
During the summits they shared an understanding of the importance of free trade. Almost half of all overseas operations set up by Japanese companies are located in China. They would increase their enthusiasm and expectations for expanded business opportunities if renewed cooperation in various fields between the two governments strengthen bilateral economic ties.
However, as European and U. Even though Japan and China agreed to accelerate negotiations for a free trade agreement between them and South Korea, and for the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership RCEPthey must overcome substantial differences in their positions.
Japan has sought high-level standards of liberalization, such as substantial tariff reductions and thorough protection of intellectual property rights incorporated in the Japan-led Trans-Pacific Partnership. Amid the trade turbulence, it is necessary for the largest trading country to demonstrate the political will to achieve higher standards of liberalization for the sake of sustainable economic growth both for it and the world.
We are entering the fourth industrial revolution.
Can China-Japan relations return to ‘normal’? - Policy Forum
It is a hybrid industry of the digital and real economy — artificial intelligence, robotics, big data, 3-D printing, new materials and biotechnology.
The nation that is most innovative and adopts emerging technologies will be the next global economic leader. Major economies will compete to win this historic race for innovation in the coming decade. China will take advantage of its state capitalism as symbolized by its Made in China policy. Tech transfers as a condition of foreign direct investment must be rolled back. There is also a possibility that China now sees Abe as a conduit for rekindling links with the Trump administration.
Abe has been making heavy use of the media to promote aspects of the talks that would tick US boxes, including China—Japan dialogue on intellectual property rights and a moratorium on technological cooperation.
Observers are now pinning their hopes on a reciprocal visit to Japan by Xi in Despite this progress, the backdrop of growing China—US tension hangs over the renormalisation effort and both parties were careful to keep Washington in mind during the proceedings. Should tensions continue and the United States altogether abandons its engagement policy towards China, Japan will likely continue to engage.
What this would mean for US—Japan relations is a looming uncertainty.
The majority of the notes exchanged at the summit talks were merely symbolic gestures with little substance. The memorandums on third country cooperation were signed under tight conditions stipulated by the Japanese, and only time will tell if future agreements on cooperation in the East China Sea eventuate.
