USCBC Applauds Commitment to the US-China Relationship Outlined by Chinese President Xi

“Working together, the United States and China have a tremendous opportunity to build stronger economies and improve the lives of people around the world.”

Seattle, Wash.: US-China Business Council (USCBC) welcomed the commitment to the US-China relationship outlined today by Chinese President Xi Jinping in remarks to nearly 650 business and policy leaders at a dinner at the start of his U.S. visit. The event was organized by the US-China Business Council and the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations with the support of Washington State Welcoming Committee.

USCBC issued the following statement today:

“This evening’s event provided an important opportunity for business and political leaders to hear President Xi’s outlook firsthand,” said USCBC President John Frisbie. “More importantly, this policy address and subsequent tour by President Xi is an opportunity for him to address the current uncertainties in the US-China relationship.  President Xi’s visit hopefully will do more to find common ground on key issues and build greater trust and confidence in the relationship, even if just incrementally.”
