Wednesday is the 35th anniversary of the establishment of China-U.S. diplomatic relations. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has called for greater strategic trust and more practical cooperation between the two countries.
Wang said China-U.S. relations have seen historic growth. China and U.S are now each other’s second largest trading partner. Bilateral trade has grown 200-fold and two-way investment has topped 100 billion U.S. dollars over the past 35 years.
Over the past five years, the heads of state of the two countries have met 14 times. The two countries have developed more than 90 dialogue and cooperation mechanisms, including the annual economic and strategic dialogue.
In 2013, nearly four million Chinese and Americans travelled between the two countries, compared with only a few thousand 35 years ago. It was on January 1st 1979 China and US established the diplomatic relations.
