China will  open more and more to the world. China would further bring down the overall tariffs, while much-needed anti-cancer drugs might phase in zero tariffs. China will further open its manufacturing sector. There will be no mandatory requirement for technology transfers and intellectual property rights will be better protected. China would combine the three laws governing foreign investors in China in order to honor its promise of offering pre-establishment national treatment.

Luo said, in 2017 the bilateral trade reached 58 billion US dollars. It is the market mechanism behind the trade volume and bilateral trade works in accordance with commercial rules. China is not willing to see such a big trade deficit. China wants the trade in overall balance. We hope the US enterprises would seize the opportunity in China's furthering opening-up in service, manufacturing and goods. We also hope the US would loosen its restriction on the high-tech and high-value-added export to China.
