Global Times – Metro Beijing - - EMBASSY -

The 2017 Ja­panese For­eign Min­is­ter’s Awards Cer­e­mony took place at the Ja­panese Am­bas­sador’s Res­i­dence on Septem­ber 4. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the var­i­ous in­dus­trial sec­tors were in­vited to the event. This year, five Chi­nese re­ceived awards for ex­cel­lence in their re­spec­tive fields. Lv Shi­hua, for­mer pres­i­dent of Beijing Yue Tan Mid­dle School; Zhang Yan, a con­sul­tant for the China Con­struc­tion Sci­ence Tech­nol­ogy Group; Xiu Gang, pres­i­dent of Tian­jin For­eign Stud­ies Univer­sity; Jin Fei, di­rec­tor of the Beijing Drama Crit­ics As­so­ci­a­tion; and Zhang Yun­fang, di­rec­tor of China Xufu As­so­ci­a­tion were the re­cip­i­ents. Ja­panese Am­bas­sador to China Yu­taka Yokoi pre­sented the awards. “China and Ja­pan are close neigh­bors sep­a­rated only by a nar­row strip of wa­ter. Al­though there are dif­fi­cul­ties in bi­lat­eral re­la­tions, we should see that there has been un­prece­dented long-term devel­op­ment in eco­nomic agree­ments, ed­u­ca­tion, cul­ture and tourism be­tween the two sides,” the am­bas­sador said in his speech. “Next year is the 40th an­niver­sary of the Sino-Ja­panese Treaty of Peace and Friend­ship. The Ja­panese Em­bassy will tightly grasp this op­por­tu­nity for the fur­ther devel­op­ment of bi­lat­eral re­la­tions.”
