On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of China as you celebrate your National Day this October 1. The United States and China share close ties between our students, business leaders, scientists and scholars, and their ideas, talent, and energy strengthen our cooperation in ways large and small.
As we continue to expand our work on the consequential issues of our time, we must continue to build on this historic opportunity to deepen our relationship, because a thriving China is good for America and a thriving America is good for China. As you celebrate this day with family, friends and loved ones, I wish the people of China continued prosperity and a joyous National Day.
