The peoples of China and the United States have forged long-lasting friendships and secured mutual benefits from arrangements that connect communities in both nations, a conference was told on Wednesday.
The theme of the online meeting, with more than 300 people participating, was "building resilient partnerships". It was co-organized by the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries and Sister Cities International.
Officials from nine Chinese provinces and nine US states, including the vice-mayor of Beijing, vice-governors from Anhui, Fujian and Henan provinces, as well as secretaries of state and lieutenant governors from Maryland, Oregon and Kansas.
Qin Gang, China's ambassador to the US, said in opening remarks that the driving force for a stable China-US relationship are the many people who are dedicated to promoting, defending and contributing to the friendly exchanges and practical cooperation between the two countries.
