High ranking officials from China and the United States are gearing up for high-level talks in Washington on June 23. The two-day talks, officially titled “the US-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue”, are the seventh time that the world’s two largest economies have met to find common ground on a number of strategic issues.
The Chinese delegation is led by Vice-Premier Wang Yang and State Councilor Yang Jiechi, while their US counterparts will be represented by Secretary of State John Kerry and Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew.
The two sides aim to seek constructive solutions on various issues. The talks will also pave the way for President Xi Jinping’s visit to the US in September.
