On December 22, 2020, Assistant Foreign Minister Liu Xianfa attended and addressed the China-Japan New Era Health Forum via video link.

Liu Xianfa said that it is of great practical significance to hold the China-Japan New Era Health Forum against the special backdrop of the ravaging COVID-19 pandemic and the joint fight against the pandemic by China, Japan and the international community. China has always upheld the vision of building a community of common health for all and is ready to deepen anti-pandemic cooperation with Japan, carry forward the friendship of "lands apart, sky shared", and make positive contribution to promoting international cooperation on public health.

Liu Xianfa pointed out that China and Japan have maintained and improved momentum for the growth of bilateral relations in general. Both sides need to follow the important consensus of the leaders of both countries on building the China-Japan relations that fit the needs of the new era, deepen practical cooperation in various fields, expand common interests and bring more benefits to the two peoples. There are tremendous potential and broad prospects of China-Japan cooperation on health. China and Japan need to give full play to their complementary advantages, and enhance comprehensive and deep cooperation on healthcare and medicine, rehabilitation and nursing, health industry and personnel training, in order to tackle aging and other common issues, improve the health and wellbeing of the two peoples and create new highlights of practical cooperation. China will continue to strongly support the local governments of both countries to take the opportunity of building "healthy cities" to build a new cooperation platform and create new opportunities of cooperation.

The China-Japan New Era Health Forum was co-hosted by the Boao Forum for Asia and Nippon Global Medical Organization. It was attended by Vice Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress Chen Zhu, Vice Chairman of the Boao Forum for Asia and China's Chief Representative to the Boao Forum Zhou Xiaochuan, Secretary-General of the Liberal Democratic Party of Japan Toshihiro Nikai, former Japanese Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda, and government officials, experts and scholars and business people from both countries.
