Washington: Chinese Vice Premier Wang Qishan on Thursday discussed bilateral ties with US President Barack Obama at the White House.
Wang stressed the importance of building a new type of relations between major countries, saying that the two countries should constantly enrich and expand the connotation of the bilateral relations and translate their consensus and intentions into policies and actions, reported Xinhua.
The party, government and leaders of China highly value the development of the relations with the US and look forward to developing economic and trade cooperation with the US towards a wider range and a higher level, he said.
Bilateral trade volume has approached USD 500 billion.
China is willing to discuss the ways to maintain and perfect the economic dialogue mechanism with the US under the new situation, Wang said.

Obama also said he is looking forward to meeting with Xi Jinping, the general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China.
