China, US annual trade talks begin

Dec 20 2013, 12:18am CST | by

Beijing, Dec 20 (IANS) The annual trade talks between China and the US began Friday to address trade frictions and build a foundation for a new model of power relations between the world's two biggest economies, authorities said.

Beijing, Dec 20 — The annual trade talks between China and the US began Friday to address trade frictions and build a foundation for a new model of power relations between the world's two biggest economies, authorities said.

"This is the first Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade (JCCT) since the new Chinese and US administrations took office," Xinhua quoted Chinese Vice Premier Wang Yang as saying at the meeting.

The US delegation includes US Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker, Trade Representative Michael Froman and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the JCCT, an annual forum launched in 1983 for the two countries to address trade and investment issues.

"The JCCT has witnessed soaring bilateral trade, which has totalled $50 trillion this year from $4 billion in 1983," Wang said.

Bilateral investment has increased to $10 trillion this year from $100 million in 1983, Wang said.

He said the JCCT also helps build a solid foundation for the new model of major-power relations, which presidents of the two countries reached consensus on during a summit in June in California.

"We have the potential here to demonstrate our two countries' ability to remove trade and investment barriers, increase openness and efficiency of our markets, and ensure the stable trade and investment relationship moves forward," Froman said at the opening session.

"Government and business leaders in the US and around the world have expressed how the JCCT should play an important role in supporting shared growth and prosperity between the world's two largest economies," Pritzker said.

"As a former business leader, I believe strongly through close cooperation we can and should achieve mutually beneficial outcomes and tangible results," Pritzker added.
