The National Committee on U.S.-China Relations co-hosted a dinner welcoming China’s President Xi Jinping on November 15, 2023 in San Francisco, following the meeting between U.S. President Joe Biden and President Xi during the 2023 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Leaders Meeting. U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo also delivered remarks at the event. 

The National Committee and its co-host, the US-China Business Council, were honored to host President Xi and Secretary Raimondo, consistent with our longstanding tradition of conducting events for visiting leaders from China. These events give people from both countries the opportunity to hear directly from Chinese and U.S. government leaders. Constructive communication leads to a more stable and productive U.S.-China relationship and is in the best interest of both countries and the global community.
