TOKYO: The newly appointed head of Japan’s top business lobby said on Tuesday he wants to play a greater role in helping the country improve its badly frayed relations with China. Sadayuki Sakakibara was formally appointed as chairman of Keidanren—the Japan Business Federation—at the annual meeting of the influential group in the world’s third-largest economy. “For Keidanren, relations particularly with the neighboring countries of China and South Korea are important,” he told the meeting. “Improving ties with China and South Korea is one of the lobby’s top agenda,” the 71-year-old chairman of synthetic materials maker Toray told local media.
