On February 13, Minister Xu Xueyuan attended the “Embassy Speaker Series” held by the US-China Business Council and had extensive discussions with participants about such topics as China-US economic & trade agreement and the fight against novel coronavirus pneumonia. Sixty American business representatives, including USCBC President Craig Allen and Senior Vice President Jake Parker, were present.

Minister Xu said that China is committed to greater reform and development through higher-level opening up. This policy will remain unchanged, as shown by the China-US economic & trade agreement. As long as both sides stick to dialogue on the basis of mutual respect and mutual benefit, all the differences could be addressed properly. Only through dialogue and cooperation can more opportunities be created to the benefit of our peoples. At this critical moment, the business community needs to speak out to ensure that the China-US relationship will move forward on the right track.

Regarding the novel coronavirus pneumonia, Minister Xu said that since the outbreak, the Chinese government and people have made all-out efforts to fight against it with nationalwide mobilization, across-the-board arrangements and rapid response. This is a people’s war against the epidemic and shows the determination, speed and capacity of China in face of a crisis. Minister Xu expressed appreciation for the USCBC and other organizations for making generous donations of urgently needed medical supplies to help China fight the epidemic.

Minister Xu’s remarks echoed very well with the participants, who expressed their readiness to contribute to the sound and steady development of China-US relations.
