Janet Yellen tells top CEOs the US wants to work with China to tackle urgent global challenges

During the US-China Business Council meeting, Yellen stressed the importance of both trade and investment with China but also acknowledged concerns about barriers to accessing China’s vast market and Beijing’s use of non-market tools, the source told CNN. The US-China Business Council told CNN that after Yellen spoke, business leaders heard from Chinese Ambassador Xie Feng. “In our separate meetings with each, we discussed the importance of ensuring a productive commercial relationship between the US and China,” USCBC President Craig Allen said in a statement. “These types of dialogues foster greater understanding between our two countries at a very important moment. We are grateful for the insights and perspectives both provided.”
