U.S. Commerce Secretary visits China

Her official trip to China follows the one made by Secretary of State Antony Blinken and another four-day visit by the U.S. Treasury Secretary Yellen.

US Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo arrived in Beijing with a dual mandate: sell more American goods and services to China and try to convince China’s leaders that the policies she’s in charge of aren’t meant to hobble their economy.

As Bloomberg commentators noted, “…the first may be a much easier task than the second”.

The United States and China share more than $700 billion in annual trade.

Earlier, Raimondo said that the entire world expects the US and China to maintain a stable economic and trade relationship.
