With the rapid changes in the world, the old era of Sino-American relations is over, and there's no going back. The two countries should thus work to create a better future and a new vision for the world, according to

That is a point Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai made at the Vision China event Tuesday in New York, where leading voices on China-US relations discussed how the two countries should resolve their differences and advance their ties.

The forum, "China-US Relations: 40 Years & Beyond", took place shortly before Beijing and Washington are to hold yet another round of high-level talks in Washington in early October to address their outstanding trade disputes. Twelve such meetings since February 2018 failed to produce a deal.

The event also featured a panel discussion on Chinese companies' investment in the US, featuring Xiao Yuqiang, chairman of the US Management Committee of the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China; Vivek K. Sarin, interim secretary of the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development; and Jeff Liu, president and CEO of Fuyao Group North America. The discussion was moderated by Ji Tao, editor-in-chief and president of China Daily USA.

The New York event at Asia Society was hosted by China Daily and Bank of China. It was the eighth Vision China since it was launched in 2018. Each has featured global opinion leaders invited to discuss Chinese topics of international significance.
