U.S., China Continue To Improve Business Relations

In another sign of improving Sino-U.S. commercial relations in the wake of the NATO bombing of the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade, U.S. Commerce Secretary William M. Daley and Shi Guangsheng, China's Minister of Foreign Trade & Economic Cooperation, are slated to meet the second week of September at the Asia/Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in New Zealand. They'll be setting the dates and agenda for the 13th session of the Joint Commission on Commerce & Trade (JCCT) in Beijing. Telecommunications, information technology, environmental technologies, aviation, and air traffic control promise to be on the agenda at the JCCT confab, which probably will occur just before the Nov. 30-Dec. 3 World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle.
