Vice President XieYuan Meets the Mayor of Washington D.C.
Vice President Xie Yuan met with Mme. Muriel Boeser, Mayor of Washington D.C. on November 10th, 2015. Vice President Xie Yuan extended warm welcome to the delegation and said that the Mayor’s visit is at the important junction of China-US relations. Chinese President Xi Jinping paid a state visit to the U.S. in September and reached a series of consensus with U.S. President Obama. His visit will not only promote our bilateral relations but also facilitate local cooperation and exchanges. CPAFFC is committed to pushing forward sub-national cooperation between our two countries and has hosted 10 U.S.Governors this year alone. CPAFFC coordinates and oversees the work of establishing and developing friendship-city relations between China and other countries. Up to now,245 pairs of sister state/province and sister cities have been established between China and the U.S..Washington D.C. and Beijing are sister cites, and they are good example for sister cities between China and the U.S..We hoped that the friendly relationship between the two cites will keep growing in the future.
Mayor Boeser thanked the CPAFFC for hosting the Washington D.C. delegation. She said that China and the U.S. should work hand in hand to promote common development and strengthen exchanges and cooperation in areas of commerce, trade, education and so on. She hoped that she could visit China more often.
