By Amy He in New York | China Daily | Updated:2017-06-16 07:54Tung Chee-hwa, former chief executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, said that while trade and business ties between China and the United States are important, the “overall relationship should not be anchored on the economic relationship alone”. He added that taking advantage of every opportunity to collaborate will move the relationship forward.The two countries were able to come together to prevent an even bigger global financial meltdown from taking place during the 2008 financial crisis, collaborate on medical science in Africa during the Ebola crisis in 2014, and are currently working together to ensure a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula, Tung said on Wednesday at the Asia Society in New York City during a high-level dialogue on the Belt and Road Initiative.”Today, the fact is that the world is faced with many other challenges that need urgent attention,” he said.”A multilateral approach will be necessary, and the involvement of the big powers is crucial,” he said.Tung was Hong Kongs first chief executive after the transfer of sovereignty from the UK to the Peoples Republic of China in 1997. He served until 2005 and is currently vice-chairman of the 12th National Committee of the Chinese Peoples Political Consultative Conference.The Belt and Road Initiative dialogue was held at the Asia Society, jointly organized by the China Center for International Economic Exchanges and the Asia Society Policy Institute.Cui Tiankai, Chinese ambassador to the US, said that the Belt and Road Initiative was a manifestation of Chinas preference for connectivity over separation.It is open to all who want to participate and invest, and China would be open to increased participation by the US, he said. “Lets make it another joint venture between us,” he said.China and the US have economies that are so interdependent that there is no option for trade wars or zero-sum games, and healthy competition should be fostered, he said.”There are signs of steps in the right direction,” the ambassador said. “Just two months ago, President Xi Jinping and President Donald Trump had their first meeting in Mar-a-Lago, Florida. It was a very successful and productive summit – maybe more successful than most people would expect. It set the tone and direction for our relations to go forward.”Regarding the 100-day plan initiated between the two sides at the meeting, Cui said that there have already been some “early harvests” and more new plans are in the pipeline.The Belt and Road Initiative should be regarded as a new driving force in economic globalization, according to Zhao Qizheng, former minister of Chinas State Council Information Office.”China is willing to share its economic power and experience with particularly underdeveloped areas and developing countries to further promote globalization,” Zhao said at the Asia Society.Hong Xiao contributed to the story.amyhe@chinadailyusa.comPhotoMiao people welcome experts in rural constructionIn the deep ocean, China stands outSweet displayEthnic group and their cultural heritageTen photos from across China: June 9 – 15Aerial photos capture beauty of lavenders in XinjiangLatestBelt and Road Initiative legal study base launched in BeijingMiao people welcome experts in rural constructionChina to launch four more probes before 2021Guandong police launch crackdown on campus loan sharksNew marine law judicial training base opens in DalianState Council NewsPremier Li: Green finance should focus on sustainable developmentQuick view: State Council executive meeting on June 14Exclusive7 firsts in Chinas sci-tech achievements in 2012-17Can you crack the gaokao quiz?7 most about Chinas gaokaoEditors picksLove conquers hardships in bitter-cold border villageWatermelon experts in high demandTen photos you dont wanna missTen photos from across China: June 9 – 15SpecialGaokao – a test that changes destiniesFive Years OnBACK TO THE TOPHOMECHINAWORLDBUSINESSLIFESTYLECULTURETRAVELWATCHTHISSPORTSOPINIONREGIONALFORUMNEWSPAPERChina Daily PDFChina Daily E-paperMOBILECopyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
