Chinese envoy to US urges stable commercial ties despite trade conflicts

The envoy, Qin Gang, made the comments in an online meeting with the chief executives of major US companies who serve on the board of the US-China Business Council, the group said in a statement on Monday. "The ambassador’s message to the CEOs was that the commercial relationship must thrive and grow while we work harder to resolve disagreements," said Craig Allen, president of the nonprofit group of 200 US companies that work with China.
