Statement from Working Group Leadership

April 7, 2016

“Maintaining a healthy commercial and financial relationship with China is critical to the continued expansion and competitiveness of the U.S. economy. Increasing access, reducing complexity and providing American businesses with new tools to facilitate trade and financial transactions with China will assist in job creation, benefit mid-tier financial institutions and businesses and open new opportunities for growth. The U.S. should continue putting steps in place to strengthen the foundations of our long-term relationship with China and manage the many connections between the world’s two largest economies.”
