On the afternoon of October 11, 2018, a delegation led by Northwest Seaports Alliance (NWSA) CEO John Wolfe visited the global headquarters of COSCO SHIPPING in Shanghai, and held talks with COSCO SHIPPING Executive Vice President Sun Jiakang.
Dr. Sun Jiakang said that the Chinese and American economy are highly complementary and interdependent. Stable Sino-Us economic and trade ties are in the common interests of people in both countries. COSCO SHIPPING hopes that the NWSA would promote the US to view the bilateral trade objectively, and make the voice of Chinese and American business communities in favor of bilateral trade heard.
John Wolfe along with the port commissioners and Washington State officers attended the meeting all agreed the observation of Dr. Sun Jiakang, and expressed that they will continue to support and promote healthy development of US-China trade, which will translate into more common benefits to both countries.
The two sides also exchanged views on cooperation in shipping and terminal operation. The meeting was also attended by executives of COSCO SHIPPING operating management division, and COSCO SHIPPING Lines.
