By Jing Shuiyu and Ren Xiaojin

China and the United States reaching a mutually beneficial agreement on trade in a timely manner will be conducive to both sides and the world economy, Guo Weimin, spokesman for the second session of the 13th CPPCC National Committee, said on Saturday.

In accordance with the instructions of the two countries' top leaders, China and the US have achieved substantial progress on such specific issues as technology transfer, protection of intellectual property rights, non-tariff barriers, service industry, agriculture and exchange rates, Guo said.

China and the US, as permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and the world's two biggest economies, play a tremendous role in promoting global prosperity, Guo said at the news conference of the Second Session of the 13th CPPCC National Committee.

It is a solid fact that cooperation is the best choice for both sides instead of standing against each other, Guo added.

Belt and Road construction brings benefits to participants

By MO JINGXI

China's Belt and Road construction has nothing to do with regional hegemony, Guo Weimin, spokesman for the second session of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference said on Saturday.

It is also unreasonable to blame China for creating debt traps in other countries by promoting the Belt and Road, he said, adding that more than 100 countries and international organizations had expressed support and participated in the initiative by the end of last year.

Debts in developing countries have historical reasons and China's investment in these countries only accounts for a small portion of the debts, Guo said.

He also said that China's investment projects are mainly about infrastructure, which are beneficial for long-term development.

China is making more friends with the construction of the Belt and Road, and the country stands ready to work with related countries to bring our cooperation to a new level, he added.
