HOUSTON, Oct. 6 (Xinhua) -- Business leaders from China and the United States gathered in this fourth-largest U.S. city on Saturday for a conference aimed at exploring potentials for bilateral cooperation and partnership.

The Third U.S.-China Educational, Economic and Cultural Conference attracted some 200 participants from both countries, who came to share experience and ideas about the opportunities, strategies and steps needed for business success in the world's largest economy and largest emerging market.

The conference "aims to create a business platform which will enhance opportunities for businesses from the United States and China, promote traditional culture and initiate private and business partnerships, which will enhance mutual understanding and development of U.S.-China business relations," said J.P. Li, president of the U.S.-China Educational, Economic and Cultural Foundation which organized the event.

"We are very excited about the opportunities that exist between Houston and China," Ed Gonzalez, vice mayor of Houston, told Xinhua on the sidelines of the conference.

"No relationship will probably be more important to our country than the U.S.-China relationship. We are very proud to know that our city has been one of the front-runners in developing a strong relationship with China," he noted.
