China, Japan OK energy, green pacts


Japan and China on Monday concluded 47 agreements on exploring public- and private-sector ways to cooperate on environmental and energy conservation.

The pacts, including one on joint development of a management system for effective electricity supply, were reached at the Japan-China Comprehensive Energy Conservation and Environment Forum in Tokyo, which has been held every year since 2006. The two countries take turns hosting it every two years.

At the forum, Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Yukio Edano said environmental and energy conservation efforts will be "the pillar of the economic expansion of both countries. . . . We expect to see such a good chain reaction in which Japanese technologies will help enhance Chinese energy-saving measures and create new business opportunities."
