Secretary General Li Baodong Meets with Myron Brilliant, Executive Vice President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce

On September 9, 2019, BFA Secretary-General Li Baodong met at the BFA Secretariat with the delegation led by Myron Brilliant, Executive Vice President and Head of International Affairs at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Secretary-General Li welcomed Myron Brilliant and thanked the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for its long-term considerable support to the development of BFA. At a time when multilateralism and free trade are seriously challenged, the trade frictions between China and the United States have a significant bearing not only on the two countries, but also on the global economic outlook, highlighting the competition between multilateralism and unilateralism. Li expressed his hope that the two countries could strike a deal on an earlier date, and he also welcomed the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to encourage more American firms to be engaged in the Annual Conferences of BFA and other events organized under the framework of BFA.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has always stood against trade protectionism, according to Myron Brilliant. The bilateral trade frictions are not only harmful to the Chinese and American economies, but also unfavorable to the international economy. Myron Brilliant appreciated BFA’s active role as an international organization in promoting regional and international trade and economic cooperation. He also expressed the intention of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to deepen its cooperation with China and relevant regions through the platform of BFA.

The two sides went further to explore the possibilities of cooperation in the fields of health, science and technology, and clean energy.
