U.S.-China Trade Forum Held Amid Trade Disputes
U.S.-China Agriculture Food Trade Forum was held Thursday in the western U.S. state of California, focusing on the promotion of marketing communication and cooperation between the agriculture and food industry of the two countries amid Washington-triggered trade tensions, according to Xinhuanet.com.
The event, jointly hosted by the Representative Office in the United States by the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT) and the China Certification and Inspection Group, CCIC North America Inc., attracted around 200 representatives from both countries.
“China’s market need for soybeans and other U.S. agricultural products is huge and strong, but because of the trade conflicts between the two countries, people are now worried about the decline of the exports of U.S. agricultural products to China. That’s one of the reasons why we are gathered here,” said Zhao Zhenge, general representative of CCPIT Representative Office in the United States.
