Consul-General Liu Jian's Remarks at the Spring Festival Reception for the "China Provinces-US California Joint Working Group on Trade and Investment Cooperation"

Respected Director Avdis,
Chairman Weisenmiller,
Distinguished Guests,

    I am very glad to welcome all of you, members and partners of the China Provinces- California Joint Working Group on Trade and Investment Cooperation, to the Chinese Consulate. 
    This is a party of appreciation. On behalf of the Chinese Consulate, I would like to express our appreciation to all of you for what you have contributed to expanding two-way trade and investment, strengthening communication, enhancing friendship and promoting growth.
    Although there has been altogether seven working groups established between Chinese provinces and U.S. states since 2013 when the California Working Group was established, our group is still the first, in terms of the efforts and achievements we have made. The high-powered California clean-tech trade mission to China, the  exchanges on high-speed rail and infrastructure, the California-China Business Summit during CHINAWEEK, are very good examples of such efforts and achievements. We should all feel proud of that. Here, I would like to thank in particular Governor's Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) and the Working Group secretariats -- the Los Angeles Regional Export Council and the Bay Area Council for your leadership and efforts in making the working group a flagship in sub-national Sino-US economic and trade cooperation.
Looking into 2017, we face a changing and dynamic environment. I hope we will all make concerted efforts to further tap the huge potential of cooperation, to further build our mutual growth and prosperity, and to enhance our long lasting friendship. 
    Let me also take this opportunity to wish all of you good health, happy family and great success in the Year of the Rooster.
    Thank you!
