The future of what many consider the world's most important bilateral relationship now hinges upon whether Washington has the much needed rationality and vision to make the right choice.
As of the end of June, the zone has attracted a total of 85 companies, with a cumulative sales volume reaching 1.7 billion U.S. dollars, creating over 4,000 jobs.
Zhao made the announcement in response to a request for comment on the so-called sanctions by the U.S. government against 11 officials of the Chinese central government and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government.
He believed that cultural exchange between the two countries has yielded fruitful results over the past years.
