its sixth year, the East Asian Summit, the Summit had previously been the main focus on five topics related to economic, technological, food safety, to prevent avian flu.

Xu Liping said, “after the East Asia Summit is likely to move in this direction, the rotating presidency of the summit in Indonesia expressed the hope that the East Asia Summit eliminate interference, continued toward the established direction.”

Japan hopes that on this basis, to join Australia, New Zealand and India. In the present case, in order to avoid being TPP effect, China may agree to “10 +6″ program.
