AMBASSADOR LOCKE: We want to see a China where the full talents of its people are unleashed, and where its workers and businesses are competing vigorously on a level playing field with foreign workers and companies. We want to see success determined in the marketplace not by political factors but by the cost and quality of a company's products. This openness is the ideal we strive for in the United States.

AMBASSADOR LOCKE: So I am proud to announce today a new Trade and Investment Initiative under which our embassy will work with US and Chinese businesses and entrepreneurs and local governments to increase bilateral trade and ties between the United States and throughout China.
