Sino-Japanese Friendship and Trade Treaty, 13 September 1871. The treaty was signed in Tientsin, by Date Munenari and Li Hongzhang.

The Sino-Japanese Friendship and Trade Treaty (Nisshin shūkō jōki (日清修好条規); simplified Chinese: 中日修好条规; traditional Chinese: 中日修好條規; pinyin: Zhōngrì Xiūhǎo Tiáoguī) was the first treaty between Japan and Qing China. It was signed on 13 September 1871 in Tientsin by Date Munenari and Plenipotentiary Li Hongzhang.[1]

The treaty guaranteed the judiciary rights of Consuls, and fixed trade tariffs between the two countries.[1]

The treaty was ratified in the spring of 1873 and was applied until the First Sino-Japanese War, which led to a renegotiation with the Treaty of Shimonoseki.
