Kong Xuanyou, Vice Minister of foreign affairs, said that during his visit to Japan, Prime Minister Keqiang will visit Hokkaido. The scene of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Dong Xin) Why do you want to go to Hokkaido? Kong Xuanyou responded to reporters like this, maybe he is interested in Hokkaido. The president of the state who has been to Hokkaido At least two Chinese president have been to Hokkaido. In November 1998, President Jiang Zemin paid a state visit to Japan. This is the first official visit of the Chinese head of state to Japan. During his 6 day visit, Jiang Zemin also visited Hokkaido and attended the dinner at Hokkaido governor of Hokkaido and Sapporo mayor of Sapporo. At the Sapporo Garden Hotel where Jiang Zemin stayed, he gave a gift to the North sea route, which he wrote in his own words, virtue is his neighbor. Jiang Zemin said that it was written at 12 oclock in the evening, symbolizing the friendship between the Chinese people and the people of Hokkaido from generation to generation. Now, this calligraphy work is placed in the old city hall in the center of Sapporo, the former government office area of Hokkaido, one of the landmark buildings in Sapporo, which has been transformed into a museum. The Jiang Zemin Handbook of the old city hall (Figure Dong Xin) In addition, in 2008, Hu Jintao, President of the Chinese state, also visited Sapporo, the capital of Hokkaido, to attend the meeting of the group of eight and the leaders of the countries held in Dong Ye lake. Where does the prime minister go to Japan? In Japan, Chinas prime minister chose not much in Hokkaido. In 1980, Premier Hua Guofeng visited Japan. This is the first time that Chinese Premier has set foot on Japanese territory. During the visit, in addition to Tokyo, Hua Guofeng and his entourage visited Nagoya, Kyoto, Kobe and Osaka. Since then, several prime ministers who have visited Japan have visited these cities, which are more or less related to China. Kyoto Arashiyama has Zhou Enlais poetry tablet, which he did when he studied in Japan in 1919 and visited Arashiyama. Hua Guofeng and Wen Jiabao both visited it. Kobe is the second largest port in Japan. It has the Sun Zhongshan Memorial Hall. It is the only memorial hall dedicated to commemorating the great Chinese in China. Zhu Rongji has visited it. In particular, in 2011, the Prime Minister of the State Council, Wen Jiabao, went to Japan to attend the fourth China Japan, Japan and South Korea leaders meeting. He went to Japans Fukushima after the just earthquake, consoled the local victims, and at the invitation of Naoto Kan, the Japanese Prime Minister, tasted the local produce of Fukushima with the president of the Republic of Korea, Lee Myung-bak. Vegetables and fruit. Agriculture & automobile in Hokkaido Where is Li Keqiangs interest in Hokkaido? At the blow up, Kong Xuanyou introduced Li Keqiangs two main trips in Hokkaido, visiting agricultural production and some important high-end manufacturing industries, such as new energy cars. First, agriculture. Hokkaido is a large island in the northernmost end of the Japanese island. It is in temperate and subcold climate. The average annual temperature is lower than that of other parts of Japan. It is almost unaffected by typhoon and mildew. When it comes to Hokkaido, many people first react to the tourist attraction, which is probably the scene of the Feng Xiaogang movie if you are the one. As we all know, in Japan, the sparsely populated agriculture is developed is also an important label of Hokkaido. Delta of Hokkaido in the late autumn As one of the grain production bases in Japan, the wheat, potato, soybean, dairy and milk production in Hokkaido are in the forefront of Japan. It is the main base of agriculture and animal husbandry in Japan. And because of the sparse population and the aging trend of agricultural population and aging, the agricultural present generation is very high. Kong Xuanyou said that this is a very important reference for the future construction of the agricultural production system with Chinese characteristics. Say the car again. In the past two years, the new energy market is booming, and new energy vehicles are also the target areas for many car companies. Japan, as a powerful vehicle manufacturing power, is one of the first countries to start developing electric cars, and Japans TOYOTA is one of the new energy technology leaders in many car companies. TOYOTAs first vehicle testing field in Japan was launched in Hokkaido in 1984. In March this year, the media reported that TOYOTA has invested 300 billion yen for new energy vehicles to build a new R & D center to speed up the R & D speed of new cars, especially the two emerging markets in China and India. The Hokkaido test ground is the winter test center for these vehicles. The prime minister will visit agricultural production and some important high-end manufacturing industries in Hokkaido, which will bring a series of important opportunities for the next two sides cooperation. Kong Xuanyou said. A meeting 12 years ago It was regrettable that the government knew no public coverage of Li Keqiangs visit to Japan in the past year. There was a lot of news that Li Keqiang met with Japanese guests over the years, or the leaders of the Japanese government or the civil society. There is one person, very special. In July 25, 2006, Li Keqiang, then Secretary of the Liaoning provincial Party committee and director of the Standing Committee of the provincial peoples Congress, met with Takahashi Harumi, the Japanese governor of Hokkaido, at the Friendship Hotel in Liaoning. In March 26th, Takahashi Harumi and Tsinghua party secretary Chen Xu Takahashi Harumi, a former economic and industrial province of Japan, had been the director of the Hokkaido economic and industrial bureau, and was recommended by the Liberal Democratic Party for the first time in 2003 to be elected to Hokkaido. The term of office was outstanding, including the newly paved Hokkaido Shinkansen line, which successfully promoted the convening of the Hokkaido Dong YeHu investment conference. The government knows to remind you that the Hokkaido boss, which he met with Li Keqiang 12 years ago, is still still in office and is the only one in Hokkaido who has been reappointed for the four session. Just a month ago, Takahashi Harumi had been to China, met with the president of China Japan Friendship Association and the former foreign minister Tang Jiaxuan in Beijing, and Gao Qiao introduced the cooperation between Hokkaido and Heilongjiang province and the Tsinghua University in recent years. I wonder if Li Keqiang will see this old man when he goes to Hokkaido. The difference became Beihai province Speaking of Hokkaido, there is an interesting interlude. In 2016, the Japanese media reported that the Chinese people in Japan buy and buy extended to the real estate field. Many Chinese run to Hokkaido and Hokkaido for 100 years of hot spring, Dong Ye lake. In July 2016, it was bought by a Chinese company to get close to 80 thousand square meters of land and build a senior resort. At that time, Japanese media also worried that Hokkaido would become Chinas Beihai province. Now, two years later, the Beihai province administration knows not to see that there are many exchanges and cooperation between Hokkaido and China. In March of this year, Hello, Hokkaido product Festival was opened in Harbin, Heilongjiang. Te Zushi, Hokkaido cold dish, Hokkaido, Hokkaido, White Lover chocolate, northern love letter ice cream, far east multi line fish, cherry blossom rain and Tai drum show, thousands of people were patronized on the opening day. White lovers factory (Dong Xin) Perhaps because of geopolitical relations, the main contacts between Hokkaido and China are mostly concentrated in the northeast region. It can be seen from the conclusion of a friendly city. In November 1980, Sapporo became a friendly city with Shenyang, and Sapporo was the seat of Hokkaidos government office. In April 1982, Xi Zhang City became a friendly city with Fushun, and Fushun had the name of coal city. It was also the main coal producing area in Hokkaido. In June 1986, Hokkaido and Heilongjiang established friendly provincial road relations. In November 1995, Asahikawa established a friendly city relationship with Harbin. In recent years, some other cities such as taro, Shek Ping, Ishikari and Dai Guang have been linked to Qinhuangdao, Miluo, Pengzhou and Chaoyang.
