The second round of China-US Strategic and Economic Dialogue (S&ED) has scored a series of achievements in such areas as energy security, climate change, the United Nations peacekeeping, as well as some regional and global issues. The breadth of the scope covered and the abundance of results made are arresting global attention.

The current round of dialogue has drawn scores of officials at the ministerial level from both sides. The American team comprises more than 200 officials, with half the U.S. cabinet having come to Beijing. It has been very rare in any dialogue between two major powers, and this also gives a full expression to the great importance the two nations have attached to the meeting.

Obviously, since the two heads of states agreed to "build a positive, cooperative and comprehensive relationship" at the Sino-US London summit held on April 1, 2009, China and the U.S. sorted out and confirmed a wide-range of topics as a platform for both sides to conduct dialogue, promote common understanding and seek positive cooperation, and the process has been in steady progress. This has made people of both nations and all other nations willing to see the stable trans-Pacific relations and world prosperity have ample reasons to rejoice.

The outcome of this S&ED focused on bilateral cooperation in the areas of energy, environment, climate change, green development and advanced fuels, and especially noteworthy is the dedication of both countries to increase their ability to cope with climate change. All these commitments require coordinated cooperation from the two sides in the next decade and so.

On the issue of sustainable development, the two nations have become more aware of the need for cooperation in implementing their emission reduction capacities. At a two-day 47-Nation Nuclear Security Summit held in Washington on April 13-14, China proposed a plan to set up a nuclear establishment demonstration center in nuclear safety program, which contain the bilateral cooperation efforts.

As a matter of course, China and the United States have signed agreements on climate change, energy and healthcare on the sidelines of S&ED… Another MOU is relating to the safety of the Westinghouse AP 1000 nuclear reactor, which is designed by a U.S. company. This is of positive significance to the enhancement of China's energy security and national development and the promotion of Sino-U.S. cooperation as a model in international community.
