Chinese Vice Premier Wang Qishan met with a U.S. Member of Congress (MC) delegation in Beijing on Tuesday, calling on the two sides to strive for the sound development of bilateral relations.

"As the biggest developing and developed countries in the world respectively, China and the United States are economically complementary. The two countries should enhance mutual understanding and trust and promote the sound development of bilateral relations," Wang said.

The delegation from the bipartisan U.S.-China Working Group (USCWG) of the U.S. Congress is led by Members of Congress Charles Boustany and Rick Larsen, co-chairs of the USCWG.

"The USCWG has done a lot of work for the development of China-U.S. relations," Wang said.

The USCWG is a group focused on educating members and staff about U.S.-China issues through meetings and briefings with academic, business and political leaders from the United States and China.

The delegates also met with head of the Organization Department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee Li Yuanchao and China's top diplomat Dai Bingguo during their week-long stay in China.

"It has been a good visit. Our meetings with the Chinese side were productive and informative," said Boustany, the group's newest co-chair.

He and Larsen vowed to continue to play a positive role in promoting communication and cooperation between the two countries, according to a press release from the meeting.

After the delegation's visit to Beijing, they will visit the coastal city of Qingdao in east China and Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province.
