Battered by trade war, China's cities vie for Japanese business

Japan-friendly Dalian leads pack with new food showroom

DALIAN, China -- China's regional governments are rolling out the red carpet for Japanese companies, eager to bring in new investments as the raging trade war drives manufacturers out of the country.

A four-floor building dedicated to showcasing and selling Japanese food products will open in Dalian on Oct. 17. A unit of state-owned Beijing Capital Agribusiness Group has poured 180 million yuan ($25.4 million) into the project. The food will be imported through Frank Japan, which is 20%-owned by Chinese e-retailer JD.com.
