Huang, vice chairperson of the National Working Committee on Children and Women under the State Council and first member of the secretariat of the All-China Women's Federation, shared China's achievements and experience in coordinating epidemic control and economic and social development.
China is committed to peaceful development and will never seek hegemony or engage in confrontation. China always believes that peace, cooperation, development, and mutual benefit are the irresistible trend of the times and the common aspiration of people around the world, Wang said.
"I believe that the U.S. actions aim to maintain its dominance in the world order" by pursuing unilateralism, he said.
"In light of Washington's trade concerns, China put into effect at the beginning of 2020 a new Foreign Investment Law that gives foreign companies greater access to the Chinese market, and offers greater guarantees in intellectual property protection," he said.
"Let business become the stabilizer for the relationship," said Ni.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, over 12,719 tonnes of supplies have been shipped from Xi'an via the train service, thus bolstering international cooperation on epidemic prevention.
According to Jaime Suarez, executive director of the Colombia-China Chamber of Investment and Commerce, "trade wars are not promising or positive for either party."
China and ASEAN countries, including the Philippines, are currently focusing on the fight against COVID-19 and resuming economic activities, which call for solidarity, coordination, peace and stability, Wang said.
"We are always ready to develop a China-U.S. relationship featuring no conflict, no confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation based on coordination, cooperation and stability," he added.
"Cambodia's commitment to liberalization is reflected in its efforts in entering into many regional FTAs, including the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, ASEAN-China FTA, and others," he said.
It is "a very negative trend that we need to defend ourselves against," Allen said, adding that both sides should work on building up mutual trust, "which is at a historic low right now."
