Peace and friendship are the common themes for humanity. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Treaty of Peace and Friendship Between China and Japan and also the 45th anniversary of friendship-cites exchanges of the two countries. CPAFFC and CJFA( China-Japan Friendship Association) will hold a series of commemorative activities to push bilateral relations for improvement and welcome Governor YONEYAMA RYUICHI and other friendly personages from all walks of life in Niigata-ken to attend actively by then.

Governor YONEYAMA RYUICHI made an introduction about the exchanges and cooperation developed between Niigata-ken and Heilongjiang province and other regions in China. He said, Niigata-ken is the hometown of the late Japanese Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka, and moreover, Niigata-ken has established relationship with China due to crested ibises. The personages from all walks of life in Niigata-ken attach importance to the exchanges and cooperation with China, and also consider China’s development as important opportunities. They will continue to carry forward the tradition of keeping friendly relations with China in the future and seize on the opportunities to further develop the exchanges and cooperation in various fields with relevant organizations in China so as to make efforts on the improvement of the bilateral relations and the friendship for generations of the two countries.
