The nation's desperate efforts to ease widespread concerns over its products caused by the nuclear crisis in Fukushima Prefecture have borne some fruit, as important trade partners China and South Korea agreed to take a scientific-based approach for Japanese imports at a trilateral summit through Sunday.

In a show of support for Japan's reconstruction, the neighbors vowed to ensure the smooth flow of trade and boost the number of Japan-bound tourists in joint statements issued after the two-day meeting in Tokyo.

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao also said in his bilateral talks with Prime Minister Naoto Kan on Sunday morning that Beijing will ease its import restrictions on Japanese food and farm produce provided the safety of Chinese nationals is guaranteed.
