| On the afternoon of June 14, 2019, Director-General Liu Xin met the panel led by Mr. Oku Munehisa, Director and President of the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ (China), Ltd. at Sichuan Provincial Department of Commerce. He also expressed his heartfelt thanks to Mr. Oku Munehisa and the Chengdu Branch of BTMU China for their contributions to promoting economic and trade cooperation between Sichuan and Japan.
Director-General Liu Xin introduced the development of Sichuan's open economy to Mr. Oku Munehisa and his panel, and pointed out that Sichuan Provincial People's Government attaches great importance to economic and trade cooperation with Japan. Sichuan Provincial Department of Commerce is taking the lead in promoting the construction of China (Sichuan)-Japan Cooperative Industrial Park. It is hoped that Mr. Oku Munehisa and BTMU China will actively promote Sichuan's investment environment and China (Sichuan)-Japan Cooperative Industrial Park, so that more Japanese enterprises will learn about the Park, actively participate in the planning and construction of the Park, carry out practical project cooperation, and jointly promote the construction and development of the Park.
Mr. Oku Munehisa said that last year, with the warming up of Sino-Japanese relations and the two visits by Sichuan government leaders, Sichuan has become a hot spot for Sino-Japanese economic and trade cooperation. He is much honored to be a member of China (Sichuan)-Japan Economic Cooperation Advisory Committee. BTMU China and its Chengdu Branch will continue to strengthen cooperation with Sichuan Provincial People's Government and relevant departments to jointly promote economic and trade cooperation between Japan and Sichuan.
