Mr. Song Jingwu, Vice President of the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (CPAFFC), met in Beijing with Mr. MATSUSHITA MASAYUKI, Vice President of Panasonic, who was invited to attend the celebration of the 40th anniversary of China’s reform and opening up, and his delegation on December 18th. Mme. Zhu Dan, Deputy Director General of Department of Japanese Affairs of CPAFFC, Mr. Zhang Kai, Deputy Director of Panasonic Corporation of China and etc. attended the meeting.

Vice President Song congratulated Konosuke Matsushita on being awarded China reform friendship medal. Song said, this year marks the 40th anniversary of the Signing of the China-Japan Treaty of Peace and Friendship. This year also marks the 40th anniversary of China’s reform and opening up. Today, the celebration of the 40th anniversary of China’s reform and opening up was held at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. General Secretary Xi Jinping and party and state leaders of China awarded Chinese and foreign reform pioneers medals and China reform friendship medals. Mr. Konosuke Matsushita received this honor as the pioneer of international famous enterprises participating in China’s reform and opening up, which fully demonstrated the highly commendation for the outstanding contributions Konosuke Matsushita and Panasonic had made to the cause of China’s reform and opening up. General Secretary Xi Jinping delivered an important speech at the conference, reviewing the glorious history of the development of China’s reform and opening up in the past four decades, declaring China’s determination to expand opening-up and build a community with a shared future for mankind. This was a huge opportunity for the countries all over the world including Japan. We sincerely expected Panasonic and friends from Japanese economic circles to further deepen the pragmatic cooperation with Chinese side and make more contributions to the friendship for generations of the two peoples and the development of the bilateral relations.

MATSUSHITA MASAYUKI thanked Chinese government for conferring on her grandfather China reform friendship medal, which is a great honor for her family and Panasonic. My grandfather dedicated his life to the cause of China’s reform and opening up. It was the first company among large enterprises in the world to make decision to invest in China, which made great achievements and also set a good example for Japanese companies entering China’s market. At present, Panasonic has 75 companies in China and around 60 thousand employees, which has become a vital pillar of Panasonic. I still work in Kansai Economic Federation as Vice President and other positions now and have led delegations to visit China and work with CPAFFC to co-organize the exchange meetings for the entrepreneurs of the two countries for 4 consecutive years. Looking to the future, Panasonic and Japanese economic circles would like to take China’s development as an opportunity to deepen the exchanges and cooperation with China in various fields, so as to realize common development, mutual benefit, and benefit to the people of the two countries.
