On August 22, 2023, Chinese Ambassador to the United States Xie Feng met with U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo. The two sides exchanged views on China-U.S. economic and trade ties and Secretary Raimondo’s upcoming visit to China.

Ambassador Xie said that China’s policy toward the United States is consistent. Our fundamental guidance are the three principles outlined by President Xi Jinping: mutual respect, peaceful coexistence and win-win cooperation. We are living in a turbulent world. Global recovery remains sluggish, and crises keep popping up. China and the United States share the same planet and the same sky. As all are in the same boat, no one can stay aloof, still less profit at others’ expense. The only right way forward is to pull together.

Ambassador Xie stated China’s position on economic and trade issues of China’s concern, requiring the US side to attach great importance and take actions to resolve them. He called on the U.S. side to work with China in the same direction, make the list of cooperation longer and shorten the negative list, so as to make joint efforts to stabilize China-U.S. relations.

Both sides viewed the meeting as in-depth, pragmatic and constructive, and agreed to maintain communication.
