China and the United States should be partners, not rivals, and together they could be good for each other and the whole world, Chinese President Xi Jinping said Thursday.
President Xi Jinping and his US counterpart Donald Trump witnessed the signing of 15 commercial documents worth of $253.5 billion on Thursday, which was seen as a strong signal of increased trade between the world's two largest economies.
As the number of Chinese students heading overseas for education continues to grow, and as the choice of destinations becomes more diverse, the United States continues to be preferred, according to a report by an educational institute.
US President Donald Trump clearly had a good time on Wednesday, the day he and his wife Melania Trump arrived in Beijing. In his tweets, he thanked China and its leaders for the "beautiful welcome" and "unforgettable afternoon and evening at the Forbidden City".
