President Xi had brought traditional moon-cakes from Beijing to the reception. The overseas Chinese in attendance had received moon-cakes from Xi. Ms. Yu Jiangjing, director of an overseas Chinese organization, who attended the event said, "We received moon-cakes from President Xi for the Mid-Autumn Festival. We have a gratitude from the bottom of our hearts. We couldn't restrain our excitement. After the banquet, many of us will keep the gift."

Overseas Chinese are determined to make their contributions to meet Xi’s expectations. Dr. Li Fu, professor at Portland State University, said, "As a representative of the education sector, I felt honored to be invited for the tea reception tonight."

Xi mentioned that the foundation of the China-U.S. friendship has its roots in the people, and the future rests with the youth. China supports sending over 50,000 Chinese and American students to study in each other's countries for the next three years.

Dr. Fu added, "I have been teaching at the University for 25 years, and served a tutor for the All-China Students' Federation as well. As an educator, I will make every effort to help students from our motherland to contribute to a peaceful future."

Liao ZhongjiangWilliam Liu, vice President of the Chinese American Federation, believes that as the world’s two largest economies should  shoulder the responsibility to guide the world.

It’s necessary to embark away from previous confrontations among major-countries in history, and to create a new model of major-country relations that support non-conflict, non-confrontation,  and win-win cooperation.

Ouyang Feipeng, director of Hunan Overseas Friendship Association and vice President of Morgan Stanley, said, “This is the first visit to the US by top leaders of our mother country, since China became the second largest economy. That’s real encouragement for overseas Chinese.”

He added, "During my academic years majoring in business, it was hardly for me to find I never read any news about China in the Wall Street Journal; however, the news from China has become more prominent in the newspaper. Recent ups and downs of China's stock market have caused global economic upheaval."'

In the past, China’s economic y development was affected by the stock market fluctuations on Wall Street; however, Chinese economic tremors will lead to global economic fluctuations. This shows the rise of China. "

According to media reports, Chinese companies have signed deals with Boeing to purchase 300 aircraft. Contracts for high-speed rail construction in the US were also inked.

Domestic enterprises are encouraged to follow the "going-out" strategy that would boost the US and global markets. Additionally, provincial leaders joined the delegation as well.
