China and the United States have signed agreements on climate change, energy and healthcare on the sidelines of the Strategic and Economic Dialogues.

The agreements also cover supply chain security and facilitation, and trade finance activities, according to officials attending the signing ceremony in the Great Hall of the People on Tuesday.

The documents include an MOU on the implementation of the Framework for EcoPartnerships -- supporting global action against climate change.

Another MOU is on the safety of the Westinghouse AP1000 nuclear reactor, which is designed by a U.S. company and will be used in Chinese nuclear power plants.
