14:22, February 15, 2012

He urged leaders of both countries to maintain close contacts by exchanging visits, having meetings and telephone conversations, among other means, to exchange views, coordinate positions, enlarge consensus and guide the handling of major and urgent issues concerning bilateral ties in a timely manner.

Secondly, Xi suggested that both sides should keep abreast of the times and expand substantial cooperation.

He said the two sides should further cooperation and communication in economy and trade, anti-terrorism, non-proliferation, environment, science and education, and between localities and youths, to cement the basis of cooperation and broaden bilateral interests.

On economic and trade issues, Xi said China and the United States should resort to dialogues instead of protectionism to address mutual concerns.

Xi said China-U.S. economic and trade ties serve as a "ballast" and "propeller" of overall bilateral relations.

He expressed the hope that the two countries would improve coordination of macroeconomic policies, deepen cooperation in handling the international financial crisis and the European debt crisis, and advance cooperation programs on trade and investment.

The two sides, he added, should also follow the principle of mutual benefit and win-win cooperation in their trade and economic relations.
