The eighth session of the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue (S&ED) wrapped up on Tuesday, June 7, in Beijing. Secretary Kerry and Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew joined their respective Chinese co-chairs, State Councilor Yang Jiechi and Vice Premier Wang Yang, along with members of the U.S. delegation and their Chinese colleagues for the S&ED.

The S&ED focused on the challenges and opportunities that both countries face on a wide range of bilateral, regional and global areas of immediate and long-term economic and strategic interest.

Secretary Kerry also joined Chinese Vice Premier Liu Yandong for the seventh annual U.S.-China Consultation on People-to-People Exchange (CPE).

The CPE promotes and strengthens people-to-people ties between the United States and China in the fields of education, culture, health, science and technology, sports and women’s issues. It provides a high-level annual forum for government and private-sector representatives to discuss cooperation on exchanges in a broad, strategic manner.
