Chinese VP urges U.S. to relax controls on high-tech exports to China


15:35, August 19, 2011

BEIJING, Aug. 19 (Xinhua) -- Vice President Xi Jinping Friday urged the United States to take "concrete action at an early date" to relax restrictions on hi-tech exports to China.

He also called on the U.S. side to provide a fair investment environment for Chinese enterprises in the United States.

Xi made the remarks at a high-level meeting of Chinese and U.S. businesses, which was also attended by his U.S. counterpart Joe Biden.

Xi said that the method of cooperation that has been used for the past three decades, in which the U.S. provided funds and technology while China provided labor, resources and markets, has greatly changed.

Bilateral economic and trade cooperation is reaching wider areas and higher heights. Competition will definitely arise between businesses from both countries in the process of cooperation and development, but that kind of competition is benign and fundamentally beneficial to common development, he added.

"We would like to see such benign competition bring benefits to both sides and create win-win results," he said.
