Lisa Brown, director of the Washington State Department of Commerce, who is leading a delegation to attend the second session of China International Import Expo, said in a written interview with Xinhua a few days ago that the Expo is an important link for the world to maintain and strengthen relations with China. She also expressed Washington's desire to strengthen cooperation and seize business opportunities with China by participating in the Expo.

"the Expo is an excellent opportunity for the world to connect with the world's second largest economy and the fast-growing consumer market, and Washington state companies look forward to consolidating their existing markets and opening up new ones in China." Brown said.

She said that Washington, such as Microsoft, Boeing, Starbucks, Amazon, Costco and other important companies in the United States have been actively involved in economic and trade cooperation with China for many years. The state's agricultural, seafood and food processors also expect to expand at this year's fair.

Brown spoke highly of China's achievements in the development and utilization of renewable energy and the construction of a low-carbon and environmentally friendly society, and hoped to seize the great business opportunities of cooperation with China in clean energy technology. She said that some enterprises of the trade delegation will take advantage of the opportunity to attend the Expo in China to participate in relevant activities in China's local city (Wuxi, Jiangsu Province) to explore cooperation in clean energy technologies such as green buildings, electric vehicles and energy storage technologies. She will also visit Hainan and other places to sign a series of bilateral cooperation agreements.

Brown said that about 1/3 of the jobs in Washington state depend on international trade, and international economic and trade cooperation is crucial to the development of Washington state. Relations with China have always been an important part of the state's global economic, trade and cultural relations.

Brown said Washington's relationship with China has gone beyond trade, covering areas such as culture, education and people-to-people exchanges. "the important relations established with China over the years, from aerospace and agriculture to life sciences and clean energy technologies, as well as scientific research, education, the arts and tourism, have been fruitful in all key areas. We will continue to strengthen cooperation with China. " She said.
