政府官员:日本、美国将于11月中旬举行第三次经济对话_双语新闻

Japan and the United States will hold a third round of bilateral economic dialogue when US Vice President Mike Pence visits Japan in mid-November, Japanese government officials said on Friday.

日本政府官员上周五表示,美国副总统彭斯(Mike Pence)将于11月中旬访问日本,届时日本和美国将举行第三轮双边经济对话。

During his visit, Pence will hold talks with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his deputy, Taro Aso, on topics ranging from trade, economic policy and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), the officials said on condition of anonymity.

这些不愿透露姓名的官员说,彭斯访华期间将与日本首相安倍晋三及其副手麻生太郎举行会谈,议题涉及贸易、经济政策和朝鲜民主主义人民共和国等。

His visit would come after the two countries kicked off bilateral trade talks in an arrangement that, for now, protects Japanese automakers from further tariffs, seen as a major threat to the export-dependent economy.

此前,两国启动了双边贸易谈判。就目前而言,这一安排将保护日本汽车制造商免受进一步关税的影响。关税被视为对依赖出口的日本经济的一大威胁。

The trade talks are led by Japan’s Economy Minister Toshimitsu Motegi and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, who met in August to start what the two sides call “free, fair and reciprocal” negotiations.

此次贸易谈判由日本经济大臣茂地茂光和美国贸易代表罗伯特?莱特希泽牵头。莱特希泽今年8月会晤,开始了双方所称的“自由、公平和互惠”谈判。

The trade talks fall within broader bilateral economic discussions led by Pence and Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso, who is also finance minister.

此次贸易谈判是由彭斯和日本副首相、财政大臣麻生太郎领导的更广泛的双边经济讨论的一部分。

US President Donald Trump has made clear he is unhappy with Japan’s 69-billion-US-dollar trade surplus with the United States and wants a bilateral free trade agreement.

美国总统唐纳德·特朗普明确表示,他对日本对美国690亿美元的贸易顺差感到不满,并希望达成双边自由贸易协定。

But Tokyo has been wary as such an agreement would boost pressure to open sensitive markets such as agriculture.

但日本政府一直持谨慎态度,因为这样的协议将加大开放农业等敏感市场的压力。
