Message to President Donald J. Trump
Mr. President, good afternoon. I ask Vice Premier Liu He to bring to you my best wishes as a new round of China-US high-level economic and trade consultations is being held. I thank you for your congratulatory message for the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China and the photos you sent of us attending the G20 Osaka Summit together in June.
Lately, the economic and trade teams of our two sides have stayed in communication and shown each other goodwill, which had been welcomed by our two peoples and the international community.
Mr. President, I attach great importance to your concerns on agricultural products. Recently, the Chinese companies involved have accelerated purchases of American agricultural products, including soy beans and pork. With our two teams making progress on some parts of the agreement under consultation, it is important that we address each other’s concerns properly and make positive headway in the other areas as well.
A healthy and steady China-US relationship serves the interest of our two countries and the world at large. I hope the two sides will act in the principle and direction you and I have agreed to, and work to advance China-US relations based on coordination, cooperation and stability. Let us work together to manage differences on the basis of mutual respect and expand cooperation for mutual benefit, so as to bring our relations forward along the right track.
