Li said President Xi Jinping met the US President Donald Trump not long ago and they had fruitful talks on the Sino-US trade issues and reached consensus. As the world’s two biggest economic powers, it is in both countries’ best interest to cooperate with each other.

As China’s biggest economic center and the window of the country’s opening-up and reforms, Shanghai will further strengthen its friendly exchange with the US cities and regions and carry out mutually beneficial cooperation.

Last month, the first China International Import Expo was successfully concluded in Shanghai, which was a major step for China to further open up to the outside world. Many US companies participated in the expo and found new business opportunities. The expo will be held annually and the city welcomes more companies to come to the future expos to exhibit their quality products and services, and share business opportunities, Li added.

Branstad said he’s glad to see that President Trump and President Xi Jinping had a successful meeting and reached consensus, and he’s willing to make more efforts to make the Sino-US trade relations back on track.

Shanghai is a beautiful metropolis full of dynamics, and he hoped to learn more about Shanghai and promote the regional and company cooperation in various industries between China and the US, Branstad added.

Zhuge Yujie, secretary-general of the CPC Shanghai Committee, also attended the meeting.
