CHENGDU - China's major concerns, including US export controls, were not addressed by the US government despite real commitments by Beijing on intellectual property rights (IPR) protection, experts said.

At a news briefing on Monday following the 22nd China-US Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade, Wang Chao, vice-minister of commerce, said China and the US have agreed to jointly tackle moves toward protectionism, ease trade friction and avoid the politicizing of economic issues.

The annual meeting was held in Chengdu, Sichuan province. US Secretary of Commerce John Bryson discussed key trade concerns with Chinese commerce officials.

"China and the US achieved fruitful results and reached consensus on many areas," Wang said.

Both parties signed five economic and trade agreements that are related to intellectual property rights, high-tech goods, energy and business cooperation.

But experts said that the US is unwilling to make substantive progress on the issues that concern China most.
