BEIJING - Chinese Vice-Premier Wang Yang discussed trade issues on Tuesday with US Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker and Trade Representative Michael Froman over the phone.

The two sides exchanged opinions on preparations for the 24th Session of China-US Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade (JCCT) and other economic and trade issues of common concern.

The JCCT was launched in 1983 as a platform for China and the United States to promote trade relations and address issues of mutual concern.

During the 23rd session on December 19 last year in Washington, the two sides reached consensus on promoting bilateral trade and business ties, and signed two documents -- a memorandum of understanding in support of China-US trade cooperation and the second phase report on the statistical discrepancy of merchandise trade.
