NEW YORK, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) -- Business leaders from both the United States and China have called for recalibrating U.S. policies on China and building up bilateral trust via dialogue, as Chinese companies operating in the United States become less satisfied with the investment and business environment in the country.
The spokesperson reiterated that the Taiwan question is the most important and sensitive issue in China-U.S. relations, and the one-China principle is the political foundation of the bilateral relationship. "The U.S. move is a serious breach of its commitments pledged on the Taiwan question," said Zhao.
Zhao said China has a huge market of 1.4 billion people and a complete industrial support system, and many authoritative international organizations believe that China injects confidence and momentum into the world economic recovery.
On behalf of the Chinese government and people and in his own name, Xi extended profound condolences to the victims, conveyed heartfelt sympathies to the bereaved families and the injured, and wished the injured a quick recovery. Enditem

Let business be business; geopolitical issues are too heavy for business to carry, said Ni Pin, president of Wanxiang America Corporation and chairman of CGCC Chicago.
With the help of advanced Chinese equipment and 50,000 diagnostics kits, so far the new lab has tested some 28,000 samples. Approximately 20 percent of them were positive, Mahdi said.
While such actions undermine the multilateral trading system at large, they also diminish the level of trusts, he said.
He added that with joint efforts of China and ASEAN, two-way trade and investment grew in the first half of this year, and fast-track lanes for personnel and logistics exchanges have been established to facilitate resumption of work and production, as well as the smooth operation of industrial and supply chains.

Still, it will be necessary to establish a clear framework for relations between China and the United States, given the current complex situation of ties, he said.
