They also made frank and sincere exchange of views on issues relating to access fishing cooperation and import and export of agricultural products. The two sides agreed to actively implement the China-Japan Fisheries Agreement, advance cooperation for access fishing, and reinforce such cooperation as quality and safety of agricultural products, agricultural science and technology and smart equipment, plant protection, pesticides, prevention and control of cross-border animal diseases such as African swine flu, and protection of new plant species, as well as globally important agricultural heritage.
