Consul-General Liu Jian's Remarks at Jiangsu (China) - US Investment & Trade Cooperation Conference
Respected Vice Governor CHEN Zhenning,
State Treasurer John Chiang,
Director Panorea Avdis,
Supervisor Curt Hagman,
Distinguished Guests,
       Good afternoon! It gives me great pleasure to attend the "Jiangsu - US Investment and Trade Cooperation Conference". On behalf of the Chinese Consulate General in Los Angeles, I would like to extend our warm welcome to the Jiangsu delegation and congratulations on this important occasion.
       Sub-national exchanges and cooperation are an important pillar for China-US relations. In recent years, sub-national exchanges and cooperation between our two countries have witnessed dynamic  development and yielded encouraging outcomes. I am very pleased to see that California is playing a leading role among U.S. states in developing this relationship. Last month, Governor Brown paid a very successful visit to China, which has borne fruitful results, especially in the field of environmental protection. Governor Brown also expressed the willingness to participate in the Belt and Road initiative to explore business opportunities for California businesses. Later today, State Treasure Chiang will lead another delegation to visit China, joined by more than a dozen mayors from California. I sincerely appreciate these efforts and the efforts by all of you in promoting exchanges and cooperation with China.
       Jiangsu Province is the second largest sub-national economy in China, and maintains close relationship with California. Jiangsu and California not only are sister state-province, but also members of the Chinese Provinces - California Joint Working Group on Trade and Investment Cooperation. There are over 60 Jiangsu companies investing in California. Companies like JAC Motors, Suning E-commerce, IVC International and Wuxi Apptec are becoming more and more well-known in the US market. Jiangsu is also one of the most popular investment destinations for American companies in China. This conference and the signing of major investment agreements today represents another milestone in Jiangsu-California trade and investment relationship.
       Look into the future, I hope we will continue making concerted efforts to further tap the huge potential of cooperation, work more closely, and make more contributions to the comprehensive and sustainable development of China-U.S. bilateral trade and economic relations.
Wish today's event a complete success!
      Thank you!
