Lin Songtian, President of CPAFFC, addressed the opening ceremony. He stated that the past 50 years have shown time and again, that as long as China and Japan respect each other, increase mutual learning, and seek common ground while shelving differences, the two countries could coexist in harmony and pursue common development. He said that as two close neighbors in east Asia, China and Japan should stay on the path of peaceful development. Lin expressed his hope for another 50 years of stronger and more resilient bilateral relations that meet the needs of the new era.
