“It’s absolutely vital that we get our trading practices with China right—and that starts with China reversing its unfair trading practices. Today, we had a productive meeting in which our members urged Vice Premier Liu and his delegation to work with the Administration and Congress to reduce trade barriers, increase intellectual property rights protection, and create a level playing field for American companies and workers. I thank the Vice Premier for coming to Washington and hope we can continue this dialogue.”
