PROMOTE PEOPLE-TO-PEOPLE EXCHANGES

During their talks, the two presidents also agreed to take positive steps to further increase people-to-people exchanges between the two countries, Hu said.

Stressing that exchanges between the two peoples represent the basis and the driving force behind the growth of China-U.S. relationship, he said that robust bilateral people-to-people exchanges have helped promote the steady growth of China-U.S. relations.

"Each year we have about 3 million people traveling between our two countries. In other words, on every single day about 7,000 to 8,000 people are traveling between China and the United States," Hu said.

He added that the Chinese government supports the friendly exchanges between the two peoples and has been creating all kinds of conditions to expand such programs.

"I would like to particularly stress here that the young people hold the future of this relationship," Hu said, adding that the two sides will encourage the young people in the two countries to go to each other's countries to pursue further education and learn more about each other.

The two countries will also further expand cultural exchanges, develop tourism and use a variety of means to further increase people-to-people exchanges, the Chinese president said.
