On the evening of June 7th, Ambassador Cui Tiankai attended USCBC Board Reception upon invitation and delivered remarks.

Ambassador Cui congratulated the new board of directors for assuming the leadership and expressed appreciation to the USCBC for its long-term and positive role in promoting China-US economic relations. Ambassador Cui said, the China-US relations have developed tremendously over the years, especially at the economic front. China has become the biggest trading partner to the U.S. Two-way trade, mutual investment and people-to-people exchanges have reached historic high, bringing tangible benefits to the two peoples and contributing to the development and stability of the global economy. The presidential meeting in Mar-a-Lago two months ago has set the tone and pointed the way forward for China-US relations. The two sides also announced the 100-day plan for economic and trade cooperation, and early harvest has been reached. The 19th Chinese Communist Party Congress in the fall will give clear direction for China’s development and boost China’s reform and opening-up efforts with the strong leadership of the Party. All these have injected new impetus to the economic relationship between China and the U.S. Ambassador Cui hopes that the USCBC and the business community will seize opportunities to expand cooperation with China, and continue to play a positive role in promoting the economic and trade relationship between China and the U.S. and bringing more benefits to the Chinese and American people.

 

More than 200 government and congressional leaders, business executives and scholars attended the reception, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Chairman Edward Royce of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Co-Chair Darin LaHood and Rick Larsen of the Congressional US-China Working Group, US Ambassador-designate to China Terry Branstad, and the new board chair of the USCBC, Chubb Chairman and CEO Evan Greenberg.
