Fukui supports China involvement at G7 talks

Bank of Japan Governor Toshihiko Fukui said on Sunday 3 October that he supports China's future participation at the financial meetings of the G7 leading industrialised countries.

``I think (China's participation) is desirable,'' Fukui told a news conference following the annual meeting of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

Fukui said it was too early to discuss allowing China to join the group as an official member, but expressed his expectations for future participation.
