Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on Thursday urged the United States to ease the restrictions on high-tech exports to China, Xinhua news agency reported the same day. “We expect the US to relax restrictions on high-tech exports to China and provide a good environment for Chinese businesses to invest in the United States,” Li was quoted as saying in a meeting with a US delegation that came to Beijing for the 24th Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade (JCCT), which begins on Friday. The delegation included US Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker, Trade Representative Michael Froman and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. Describing economic cooperation as the ballast of China-US relations, Li called on the two countries to make best use of their advantages and improve cooperation.
