WASHINGTON, D.C.—Reps. Rick Larsen (WA-02) and Darin LaHood (IL-18), co-chairs of the U.S.-China Working Group, today released the following statement following the conclusion of China’s 19th Party Congress:

“As China’s 19th Party Congress concludes, U.S. Congress stands ready to work with the new party leadership. The United States and China face a number of shared opportunities, such as expanding economic and cultural exchange and promoting a nuclear-free Korean peninsula.  In the days ahead, we look forward to working with our Congressional colleagues and with Chinese leadership to make progress on these issues while also strengthening our relationship, which remains one of the most important bilateral relationships in the world.”
