Vice President Xie Yuan Meets with New York State Legislature Delegation
Vice President Xie Yuan met with New York State Legislature Delegation headed by Assistant Speaker Felix Ortiz of New York State Assembly on April 10, 2017.
Vice President Xie Yuan extended a warm welcome to Assistant Speaker Ortiz and his delegation. He said, China-U.S. sub-national cooperation is the cornerstone of China-U.S. relations. The CPAFFC has established sub-national cooperation mechanisms such as China-U.S. Governors Forum, China-U.S. Sister Cities Conference and China-U.S. Sub-national Legislatures Cooperation Forum. He hoped New York State continue playing active role in these mechanisms, adding new momentum to China-U.S. sub-national cooperation.
Ortiz said, as the two biggest countries of the world, the U.S. and China share global responsibilities. He was very glad to see leaders of the two countries sit down with pleasant conversations at Mar-a-Lago last Thursday. He hoped to build stronger ties through sister cities and sister states between New York State and China, in public policy making and other areas, tapping into the potential of cooperation at city and state level.
