Chinese President Hu Jintao Tuesday told U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner that he hoped the China-U.S. Strategic and Economic Dialogues would play a greater role in boosting bilateral relations.

Hu said the two rounds of the dialogues held so far reflected the vitality and vigor of the mechanism, which he and U.S. President Barack Obama initiated in April last year.

Hu said both countries exchanged views over a range of strategic, comprehensive, and long-term issues through the dialogues.

Hu's special representatives, Vice Premier Wang Qishan and State Councilor Dai Bingguo, co-chaired the two-day event in Beijing with Clinton and Geithner, who were Obama's special representatives.

Hu thanked the four special representatives for their hard work and efficiency.

"I hope the four special representatives, and both teams will seriously implement the achievements, draw on their experiences, and strengthen the building of the mechanism so it can play a greater role," Hu said.

Clinton said she appreciated the "substantial speech" made by Hu at the opening session of the dialogues, and thanked him for receiving the U.S. team for the exchange of views.

"The two teams worked hard to realize the vision between Obama and you," Clinton told Hu.

She said the two sides had deepened cooperation in the second round of talks with the largest-ever delegation.

Their meeting took place at the Great Hall of the People Tuesday in Beijing after conclusion of the high-level talks. About 50 representatives from more than 40 departments of both countries participated in the dialogues.
