Chinese Vice Premier Wang Qishan arrived in Tokyo on Saturday afternoon for high-level economic talks between the Asian powerhouses, an airport official said.

Wang and Japanese Foreign Minister Hirofumi Nakasone will co-chair the second China-Japan economic dialogue, which takes place on Sunday, government officials said.

The one-day meeting in Tokyo is expected to cover the global financial crisis and ways to boost trade ties between the world's number two and three economies.

Tokyo also wants to press Beijing to drop its plans to require certification of IT products to be used by the government. The United States, Japan and other major IT manufacturers fear China will use the process to learn trade secrets.

The first dialogue was held in Beijing in December 2007.
