Chinese Vice-Premier Wang Qishan met with a delegation of U.S. Congress members in Beijing on Thursday, pledging to strengthen bilateral trade cooperation and facilitate fresh progress of Sino-U.S. constructive cooperative ties.
The delegation, consisting of congress members and governor of Missouri, was led by senators Christopher Bond and Claire McCaskill.
To cement cooperation and exchange between China and the United States will contribute to world peace and development. China would unswervingly boost its reform and opening-up, Wang said, calling on joint efforts from both sides to promote progress in bilateral constructive cooperative ties.
China was ready to cement friendship with Missouri and step up the win-win cooperation in trade and other areas in a bid to benefit people of both sides, Wang added.
In response, Bond and McCaskill said Missouri was willing to exploit its own advantage and cement cooperation with China in trade, air transport, tourism and culture.
