China will support Japanese products entry into the Chinese market on the basis that they are safe, Minister of Commerce Chen Deming said Monday.

"China is willing to help Japan with its post-disaster reconstruction and economic recovery," Chen said while meeting Japan's Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Banri Kaieda in Beijing.

Chen noted that the country will arrange a special exhibition area for the promotion of Japanese goods at the 110th Canton Fair, or China Import and Export Fair, which will take place this fall in south Guangdong Province.

China will invite Japanese companies to attend the fair, especially those companies from the three worst-hit regions -- Fukushima, Miyagi and Iwate, he said.

According to a statement from the Ministry of Commerce, the two ministers talked about various issues, including China's rare earth export policies, and enhanced cooperation in fields such as the e-commerce, energy-saving, environmental protection, and protection of intellectual property rights.
