Future of Those Born in the 1990s in Japan and China

Inoue Masayuki

I was born in 1992 in Tokyo.My generation was called“the generation of affluence”, with many people thinking we enjoy a well-off life.In China, this generation is called“the 90s”, experiencing a lot in common with the“generation of af f luence”in Japan as they grew up.

For instance, the average fertility rate of the Japanese women of childbearing age dropped to less than 1.5 by the end of the 1990s.Most Chinese young people are the only child in their families due to its family planning policy.What’s more, most young people of both countries are from double-income families, with less time spent with their parents.And in the globalization era, the information across the world is easily accessible.Growing up under such circumstances, the“generation of af f luence”and the“90s”have vastly different ways of thinking and values compared with other generations.

I studied in Beijing Language and Culture University when I was 18.Before embarking on the trip, I had not learnt a single word of Mandarin.I went to China just because I wanted to go overseas.I did not have a specifi c impression on China before the trip.However, I gained some fresh insights into that country after talking with my Chinese friends.

For example, I was quite amazed at my Chinese friends’independent opinions.In Japan, people too often can not speak our minds for fear of damaging cordial atmosphere.But Chinese people are totally diff erent.They speak what they think and want without hesitation.I think they are full of energy and vitality.

I was also surprised at their action.Many Chinese friends I know are motivated to take actions.I was impressed by their leadership.

What impressed me most was their self-discipline.They can always squeeze time from their busy schedule to study.I think their enterprise is what Japanese youngsters lack most.

According to the public opinion survey carried out jointly last year by Japan and China, the propor tion of Chinese youngsters holding negative attitudes towards Japan dropped slightly, while Japanese generally hold negative views of China.More and more Chinese think favorably of Japan, as most Chinese youngsters born in the 1990s grew up watching Japanese subculture such as cartoons, and they are increasingly exposed to Japanese information and products due to the rapid development of the Internet and trade.In Japan, media reports sometimes are full of negative stories about China, a major factor contributing to Japanese people’s negative perception of China.I would point out that these reports are biased and distorting, but it is dif f icult for me to fi ght against this phenomenon all by myself.

But I am looking forward to maintaining peaceful, lively and hopeful exchanges with my Chinese friends in the future.And I will do my best to contribute to the friendship between Japan and China.

To achieve this goal, more platforms need to be created to enhance the exchanges between young peoples of the two countries so as to deepen mutual understanding and trust.For quite a while, I’ve been planning and organizing a wide variety of exchange events in Japan and overseas to promote the friendship between our two countries.During my study in Beijing, I held the Japan-China Exchange Meeting monthly as the representative of Japanese students, expanding platforms for Japanese students to learn Mandarin and vice versa.In addition, I planned the“Japanese and Chinese adulthood ceremony”and the“summer event”to promote Japanese culture, and also organized some events intended to enhance the mutual understanding of youngsters between both countries.After returning to Japan, I started to run the“Association of the 90s” (made up of Japanese and Chinese youngsters born in the 1990s living in Japan) and have spared no eff orts to build it into a platform for Japan-China exchanges.These events taught me that one encounter between diff erent people may lead to further friendship.

When faced with strangers, we tend to feel vigilant and hold negative perception towards them.I t is quite pathetic and needs to be improved.

Therefore, it is ver y impor tant to promote exchanges between young peoples in the two countries at the grass-roots level so that more people could truly understand each other.I firmly believe that exchanges at any scale and in any form will sow the seeds of Japan-China friendship.It is of vital importance to nurture the seeds of grass-roots exchanges.Unlike other generations, the“90s”in Japan and China will shoulder the important responsibilities of promoting bilateral ties in the coming 2 or 3decades.They are the treasure in the development of Japan-China relations.

Isn’t it important that someone can stand up and lean one step ahead?It is more important that Japan and China should work together and make unyielding eff orts towards the direction of friendship no matter what happened.

There is an saying in China which goes“When drinking water, please don’t forget those who dug the well”.We should never forget the pioneers who drew the well of Japan-China friendship, as we are determined to promote the cause to a higher level.From now on, as grateful to the pioneers, we should do our best to dig the well of Japan-China friendship even deeper and see the seeds of peace bloom and yield fruits.

Japan-China Friendship 2.0

Yohei Ito

Time has passed when Japan-China friendship could be realized simply by ideas.

That is what I learned from Japan-China exchange activities after I returned home upon fi nishing my study in China.

Although I did not witness the normalization of the diplomatic ties between Japan and China, I k now many people back then were quite enthusiastic about promoting the friendship between the two nations and they also enjoyed suf f icient fund for carrying out relevant events.Therefore they were able to rapidly turn ideas into reality.But that generation is growing old.And the number of people dedicated to the cause is also declining.The government cuts its funding for these events, while less companies are able to provide fi nancial support.A lot of organizations are lacking money.Given such changes, new forms must be adopted in carrying out these events.I hereby put forward the suggestion of building“Japan-China Friendship 2.0”, just like web 2.0.

1.Separation of exchange activities carried out by the government and the people

When I came to China in 2012 for study, the purchase of Diaoyu Islands incident broke out.On September 18, I was told not to leave the school and to spend time with teachers in the classroom.The air was full of anxiety.But many of my classmates believed the government’s action should be separated from individual friendship.Such a view is very important to facilitate peopleto-people bond, which should not be aff ected by political relations.

2.Provide environment necessar y for the continuing events and conduct events suited to their own capacity

These events dedicated to promoting friendship often cost a lot.The money is mainly donated by those who care about this cause.Such mechanism would exert heavy burdens on people, making cash-strapped people unable to join these events.In light of that and the cost-eff ectiveness of the events, we must carry out necessary side events and halt events of low participation willingness.It is very important to carry out events meeting the anticipation of participants according to their own capacity and situation.

3.Strengthening cooperation among different organizations and age groups

There are a lot of organizations dedicated to promoting Japan-China friendship.In addition to the exemplary seven Japanese organizations, there are many student groups and Chinese organizations.But these organizations often conduct events alone, and are all faced with the decline in funding and members.Therefore, we can improve the eff ectiveness of these events by strengthening cooperation among these groups.

Meanwhile, I am fully aware of the importance of cooperation between the younger generation and the older generation.We don’t have enough experience and networking, but we are galvanized into action.The older generation of people have abundant experience and networking, as well as good ideas.If we combine the enthusiasm of the younger generation with the experience and networking of the older generation, we can give full play to our respective strengths.It is a good idea to cooperate across diff erent age groups.

4.Carry out events at diff erent stages

Speaking of China, most Japanese think of n e g a t i ve to p i c s.Th i s i s w h a t I p e r s o n a l l y experience.It is very difficult to change these people’s negative perception immediately.Therefore, we need to break the process into several stages.First, we need to gather those who have studied in China or have interest in that country and carry out events among them.Second, for those who have never been to China but adopt a neutral position on that country, we need to encourage them to get to know more about China, so as to expand the“circle of friends”for people-to-people bond between the two countries.Third, we will try to bring those who feel negatively about China to our events.Currently, the time is ripe for the fi rst stage and we can consider expanding the efforts of the second and third stages.

5.Understanding of the media

In China, TV episodes depicting Chinese people’s War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression are quite popular.In Japan, media run many reports critical of China’s environmental issue and its stance on Diaoyu Islands.In fact, it is dif f icult to solve these problems simply by criticizing.Chinese media views patriotism education as an integral part in their reports, while Japanese media try to catch readers’eyes by sensational and critical reports to seek commercial interests.We can’t change the media themselves, but can let people know why the media is full of such reports.It would ease the prejudice between our two nations and encourage more people to take a step forward.

I’v e s t a t e d my o p i n i o n s o n“J a p a n-C h i n a Friendship 2.0”.I think this event goes beyond an essay contest.Rather, it provides an important platform to make our voices heard.I hope this message can reach more readers to help promote the development of friendship events.If anyone is interested in one of the above events, please contact me.I’d like to join hands with you to strive for the friendship between Japan and China.

“Belt and Road”Initiative Facilitates Win-win Cooperation between Japan and China

Suetomi Syohei

Chinese government put forward the concepts of jointly building the“Silk Road Economic Belt”and the“21st Centur y Maritime Silk Road”, together referred to as the“Belt and Road”Initiative.

Following the principles of wide consultation, joint contribution and shared results, the“Belt and Road”Initiative seeks to promote the world’s peaceful development and economic prosperity by carrying out economic cooperation and cultural exchanges with countries along the silk road.It covers Asia-Pacifi c region, Europe and Africa.

The“Belt and Road”Initiative will have positive impacts on the world in diff erent aspects, mainly because it advocates for building infrastructure, eliminating income gaps and creating a new economic model.

First, the most important element of the initiative is to build infrastructure in the much-needed areas.Well-functioning infrastructure will help achieve smooth logistics, improve living standards and civilization.

Second is the elimination of the gap between the rich and the poor.The“Belt and Road”Initiative focuses on the principle of consultation.It aims to bring mutual benefit rather than seeking its own interests.What’s more, it seeks mutual development instead of phase-by-phase development.Phase-by-phase development refers to the model that certain countries develop fi rst and then help other countries realize development.It is a kind of domino development, just like the“goose mode”promoted by Japan in the southeast Asian countries.Quite on the contrary, the aim of the initiative is to seek simultaneous and common development of all the countries without generating huge gap between the rich and the poor.

Last, it provides an alternative economic system.Centered around developed countries with European countries and the US as the typical examples, the current economic system provides suppor t for the modern and contemporar y economic development of the world.However, financial crisis and fiscal crisis in recent years sent the economy into a stagnation.Developing countries and emerging economies have huge demand in a lot of areas including infrastructure.The I nitiative will help bring about a new economic system centered around the countries along the“Belt and Road”, injecting new vitality into the world economy.

But the Initiative is also facing some challenges.The infrastructure development will be a grand undertaking covering Asia and Europe.To turn that blueprint into a reality, the technology and capital will both become issues.

F i r s t, a d v a n c e d t e c h n o l o g y i s n e e d e d.Infrastructure is the core of the new type of communication, therefore it cannot be easily destroyed.Environmental effect should also be taken into consideration in developing i n f r a s t r u c t u r e.A l l t h e s e n e e d a d v a n c e d technology.

Second, huge amount of capital is needed to achieve such a grand concept.The capital is mainly from the AIIB, a bank initiated by China and joined by many European developed countries including the UK.But Japan and the US have not joined, and the bank has yet to prove any performance.Therefore, it remains uncertain whether it can win the trust of the international community.

These problems can be solved through the cooperation between Japan and China.Japan is an expert in this regard, with the proven experience in building infrastructure in many countries.What’s more, its high-tech can also help reduce green-house gas emissions.

In addition, if Japan joins the AIIB, the worry over lack of capital would be eased.Japan can provide not only capital, but also expertise from managing the ADB and developmental infrastructure banks.Japan’s joining would further boost the prestige of the AIIB and encourage more countries to join so as to raise more capital.

The“Belt and Road”Initiative can bring huge benefi t to Japan.It would not only bring direct dividend to the Japanese economy, but also enhance Japan’s presence in the international community.To perfect infrastructure, Japanese companies can do a lot overseas, which will in turn help eliminate the income gap and boost the development of new economic system thanks to the development of the“Belt and Road”.Being part of the initiative would provide a huge opportunity for Japan.

All in all, the“Belt and Road”Initiative concerns the development of the world as a whole and is a huge opportunity for the economic cooperation and trade between Japan and China.
