22nd Annual Conference – Roundtable II: Bilateral Trade Relations

Roundtable II: Bilateral Trade Relations
The Global Impact of U.S. u002du002d China Cooperation and Competition

The United States and China have become increasingly economically interdependent with over $530 billion traded in goods and services in 2011. Washington and Beijing share common interests in achieving a global trading partnership in which workers and companies compete on a level playing field and promote productivity growth through research and innovation. Trade and commercial challenges such as barriers to market access, intellectual property rights and trademark protection, government procurement preferences, and export financing require constructive bilateral and multilateral dialogue. U.S. and Chinese speakers offer policy and corporate practitioner perspectives on how the countries can manage competing interests to benefit the global economy.
