The Chinese leader of the China-America Comprehensive Economic Dialogue, Liu He, who is on a visit to the United States, received media interviews on the morning of the 19th. He said that the biggest achievement of the Sino-U.S. economic and trade consultations was that the two sides reached a consensus that the trade war should be stopped, and stopped levying tariffs on each other.
Liu He said that this is an active, pragmatic, constructive and fruitful visit. The two sides reached many consensuses on the development of an active and healthy China-US economic and trade relationship. The most important reason for the positive results of this consultation is the important consensus reached by the two heads of state. The fundamental reason is the needs of the people in both country and the whole world.
Liu He said that China and the United States will strengthen trade cooperation in energy, agricultural products, medical care, high-tech products, and finance area. This coopertation can not only promote China's economic development towards high quality, meet the needs of the people, but also help the United States reduce its trade deficit. This is a win-win choice. At the same time, the two sides will continue to strengthen mutual investment and deepen cooperation in the field of intellectual property protection. This will not only benefit China and the United States but also contribute to the stability and prosperity of global economic trade.
He emphasized that China has a large middle-income group and will become the largest market in the world. This market is highly competitive. If you want to gain a share in the Chinese market, exporting countries must improve the competitiveness of their products and services so that the Chinese people are willing to buy. China is not only willing to buy from the United States but also from the world. China will host the first international import expo and welcome countries from all over the world to participate.
Liu He said that the consensus reached between the two sides is inevitable, but at the same time it must be realized that Rome was not built in a day, and it will take time to solve the structural problems of the economic and trade relations between the two countries over the years. The healthy development of Sino-U.S. economic and trade relations is in line with the historical trend and no one can stop it. In the face of new twists and turns in the development of the relations between the two countries in the future, we must look calmly, persist in dialogue and properly handle them.
