During his meeting with U.S. Senator Evan Bayh, Wang said China is a fast-growing developing country that will "unswervingly push forward the reform and opening-up process."

Given their differences in history, culture and development stage, China and the United States should strengthen communication and understanding, Wang told Bayh, a Democrat from Indiana.

"Knowledge is the pre-condition for the understanding that promotes mutual trust," Wang said.

Expressing appreciation for China's efforts to overcome the international financial crisis, Bayh highlighted the importance of U.S.-China ties and proposed the two countries boost cooperation.
