BEIJING, Jan. 12 (Xinhuanet) -- "Significant for the stability and development of China-US economic relations and the development of bilateral relations in 2012" - that’s how Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping is describing the visit by US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.
Xi made the remarks during a meeting with Geithner, who is visiting Beijing as US President Barack Obama’s special representative. Xi expressed appreciation for Geithner’s work on China-US macroeconomic coordination and pragmatic cooperation.
Geithner says his visit is designed to explore how to work together, and create a stronger economic relationship between the two countries. He says he’s looking forward to expanding US exports to China, with US economic growth and recovery the top priority. Geithner arrived in Beijing on Tuesday, for a two-day visit.
