Minister Wang Wentao met with Apple CEO Tim Cook

On March 22, Minister Wang Wentao met with Apple CEO Tim Cook, and discussed with him Apple’s development in China and China-U.S. trade and economic relations.

Wang Wentao said that the Chinese economy has strong resilience and its fundamentals will remain sound in the long term. China boasts an enormous market, a well-developed industrial system, high-quality human resources, and a stable and open business environment. China is working to foster new quality productive forces, led by innovation, and enjoys broad prospects in high-tech development such as artificial intelligence and cloud computing. This will bring remarkable opportunities for Apple and companies from all around the world. He encouraged Apple to continue to unlock the Chinese market and achieve shared development with China.

Wang Wentao stressed that China-U.S. trade and economic cooperation is a stabilizing force in bilateral relations. The business community is widely opposed to decoupling from China and the generalization of the concept of national security. China is willing to work with the U.S. to create a fair, stable and predictable environment for bilateral commercial cooperation.

Tim Cook said that China is an important market with a rich talent pool and innovation vitality, and a crucial supply chain partner for Apple. He reaffirmed Apple’s committed to long-term development in China and plans to increase investment in China’s supply chain, research and development, and marketing.
