JAPAN: New Silk Road to promote development

The 16th Conference of Major Cities in the Japan Sea Rim Region was held Friday in Yanji, Northeast China's Jilin Province. Mayors from 11 cities of Japan, Russia, South Korea and China attended the event.

At the conference, Park Seung-ho, mayor of Pohang City, South Korea, proposed to set up a "Silk Road" in the Japan Sea Rim Region (JSRR) and Tumenjiang river region by planning a visa- and duty-free network in the 11 cities along the Japan Sea to facilitate the economic exchanges and development there.

The conference calls for the upgrade of the transport within the region, to connect the east coast of South Korea with the western shore of Japan, in order to deepen industrial and technological cooperations in the rim, according to Park Seung-ho.

China aims to develop its northeast border by further integration of the Japan Sea Rim region. In 2009, China's State Council approved to take Changchun-Jilin-Tumen as the pilot area for opening up in Tumenjiang River region, according to Li Longxi, the governor of Yanbian Prefecture, Jilin Province.

The mayors also agreed to set up a standing office to provide discussion themes for the annual conference, and to serve as a bridge for mutual understanding and communication.

The conference was launched in 1994 by the Japanese cities of Sakaiminato and Yonago. It (conference) aims to provide an opportunity for representatives of major Japanese Sea Rim cities to meet in one city in order to hold open discussions and exchange of opinions in the field of public administration.
