Message from the Ambassador
“Earlier this month, President Obama went before the United States Congress to announce a new economic plan, and made one thing crystal clear: Creating more jobs for Americans is the foremost priority of the Obama administration. And given our economic interdependence, more jobs in America and a stronger American economy are also in the economic interest of the Chinese people.
That’s why my top priority here is to work with the American business community in China to support President Obama’s job-creating efforts:
- Helping to double American exports by 2015 – which will create jobs in the U.S. and provide high-quality, Made-in-America products and services which would be beneficial to China;
- Increasing Chinese investment in the U.S. – which will help Chinese companies prosper while at the same time creating jobs in America;
- And ensuring that U.S. companies can compete on a level playing field in China and operate in the same open and fair environment that Chinese companies enjoy in the U.S.
- Achieving these goals require a thriving China and a closer commercial relationship between our countries.”
