It is encouraging to hear that the summit is themed ¡°Innovation Leads to Development, Cooperation Creates the Future!¡± Innovation and cooperation are the best paths to providing a better future for the people of China, the United States, and the entire world.
The United States-China relationship is important not just for our two countries, but for the entire world. I look forward to our continued dialogue on the many important issues related to the United States-China relationship and to the results of your deliberations.
Best wishes for a successful and memorable summit.
Democratic Leader and the 60th Speaker of the United States House of Representatives
