China News Agency, Washington, May 5th, "We have differences, but tariffs and trade wars should not be our choices." Qin Gang, Chinese Ambassador to the United States, recently told Forbes magazine about Sino-US economic and trade issues that it is best to It is to find a solution acceptable to both parties through dialogue and negotiation based on the principles of mutual respect and understanding.
One party should not impose its own interests and ideas on the other.
Qin Gang was interviewed by Forbes magazine on April 29, answering questions on Sino-US economic and trade relations, bilateral economic and trade agreements, corporate investment, and business environment.
A related report was published on May 5.
Talking about the first phase of the China-US economic and trade agreement, Qin Gang said that China has fulfilled all time-bound obligations and made significant progress in intellectual property protection, agricultural product market access, and financial services.
China has purchased more goods from the United States and has implemented market-based exclusions of counter-tariffs against the United States, which is also the reason for the significant increase in U.S. exports to China last year.
"We've done a lot."
Qin Gang stressed that the trade war is not good for anyone.
It's time for the U.S. government to reconsider and remove the additional tariffs as soon as possible.
If the U.S. wants to continue, I don’t know if it is ready to suffer more losses, but China has to accompany it.
When asked about Sino-US economic and trade relations, Qin Gang pointed out that the current Sino-US economic and trade cooperation faces some difficulties and challenges, and these instability and uncertainty mainly come from the US side.
It is hoped that the US will stop politicizing business cooperation and use trade as a tool to provide investors with more stability and predictability.
Sino-US economic and trade cooperation should not be limited to what you buy and sell, but should be extended to sustainable development, and discuss how the two countries can learn from each other and help each other to achieve a green and low-carbon transition.
As the world's two largest economies, China and the United States need to strengthen coordination and cooperation and play a leading role in promoting the rapid recovery of the world economy.
Qin Gang said that in recent years, the US has continuously politicized economic and trade issues, abused and generalized the concept of national security, and more than 1,000 Chinese companies have been sanctioned or restricted.
China urges the US to regain its rationality and provide Chinese investors with a fair and predictable investment environment so that they can maintain confidence in the US market.
In addition, Qin Gang also answered questions on cultural exchanges and cooperation between the two countries and travel to China.
