others i can see firsthand the friendship between the chinese and american people. agreed to share each other's feelings. this gives me every confidence about the future of our relations. >> [speaking chinese] >>translator: mr. president this is obama and friends success comes as dedication ever is china u.s. relations have reached a new starting point in the
president xi back to the white house. we first toasted him when testifies vice president. this is our sixth meeting. as a result of our efforts, our nations are working more closely across the broader change of critical issues. since i took office, america's export to china has nearly doubled. chinese investment in the united states help support across the country. encouraging development reconciliation in afghanistan to the ebola in west africa. we have encouraged other countries to step us as well increasing prospects for global
agreement. as a member, china was critical that brought iran to negotiating tables and talk to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. greater prosperity and greater security is what american and chinese can do. that's why i want to say again, the united states welcome the rise of a china that is peaceful, and responsible player in global affairs and committed to expand cooperation even if we address disagreements candidly an construct iively. that's what president xin and i first with respect to economics, level the plain field for
american companies. we committed ourself for trade and economic technologies, including protection of property . i raise once again concerns about cyber threats to american companies and american citizens. i indicated that it has to stop. united states government does not engage for commercial gain and today i can announce that our two countries reached a common understanding on the way forward. we've agreed that neither the u.s. nor the chinese government will conduct or knowingly support theft of intellectual president including trade secrets or other confidential
for local advantage. we will work together and with other nations to promote international rudes for appropriate conduct in cyberspace. so this is progress, but i have to insist that our work is not yet done. i believe we can expand our cooperation in this area even as the united states will continue to use all of the tools that are disposal to protect american companies, citizens and interest. second, i'm pleased that we are building on last year's business. help reduce american's carbon omissions. china will begin to limit omissions from some of its largest sectors. last year i announced our pledge for $3 billion to the green climate fund to help with climate change. today i welcome china for most
countries vulnerable as well. the world's two largest economist and consumers come together like this, there's no reason for other countries whether developed or developing to not do so as well. and so this is another major step towards the global agreement the world needs to reach in two month's time. third, with respect to security in the asia pacific. we agreed to new channels and reduced miscalculations between militaries. united states and china reaffirmed commitment to complete of the korean peninsula and demand implementation and rewill not accept north korea as a nuclear weapon state. we did have candid discussions on the east and south china seas
and reiterated the right of countries to freedom and overflight, as such, i indicate that had the united states will continue the sail, operate anywhere that international law allows. i convey to president xi concerns over land reclamation, construction and the areas that makes it harder. i encouraged a resolution between claimants in the area. we are not a claimant, i just want to make sure the rules of the road are upheld. i reiterated my strong commitment as well based on the taiwan relations act. fourth, we agree to the more to promote international security. the united nations in the coming days, u.s. and china will bring countries to promote development in afghanistan and will work
with many partners to strengthen international peace keeping. all parties including iran need to implement nuclear deal and need to be fully enforced. for the first time u.s. and china will formally partner to promote global development. building our efforts against ebola will work to strengthen security and expand join efforts on humanitarian assistance and food security and given china's success, we will help rally this weekend around new development in our goal to eliminate extreme poverty. i affirm america support for all people including freedom of assembly and expression, freedom of the press and freedom of
religion and i expressed in views to prevent journalists lawyers and civil society groups from operating freely or denying ethic minority equal treatment are problematic in our view and prevent china and its people from realizing it's full potential. obviously we recognize that there are real differences and president xi shared his views in terms of how can he can move forward in a step-by-step way to provide chinese unity. we expect and continue to consult in these areas. even as we recognize that that is part of the people's repup lick of china. we continue to preserve the religious and cultural for his representatives. finally we are taking more steps
, boost tourism between our countries in the past months and just as children across china learn english, we are starting one million strong and encourage one million american student to learn mandarin chinese over the next five years. vice president biden pointed out that two of his children are on track, two of his grandchildren, actually. after all, if our countries are going to be more together around the world, then speaking each other's language truly understanding each other is a good place to start. overall we had an extremely productive meeting. particularly work that has been done by our teams shows the extraordinary progress that we can make when working together. the candid conversations about disagreement help us understand to avoid miscalculations and take away potentially for further progress in those
further, and president xi i want to thank you again for expanding our commitment for cooperation between our nations. it's another reminder that as we work to narrow our differences we will continue to advance mutual interest not only two countries but for the benefit of the world. thank you very much. >> president obama, press, ladies and gentlemen, good friends, good morning. it's a great pleasure for me to meet with all of you together with president obama. let me begin by thanking, again, president obama on the u.s. government for the gracious hospitality and thoughtful arrangements to me and the chinese delegation.

this is ben a serious discussion between myself and president xi. the good news from my perspective is in the of the depth -- of the up to and to be finalized today we have made significant progress to how law enforcement and investigators are going to work together for a shave and information individuals or entities to engaged in cybercrime or cyberattack to join the firm that governments don't engaged in
cyberespionage for commercial gain i consider that progress what i said to president xi and the american people is the question is are words followed by actions. we will be watching carefully to make an assessment as to whether progress has been made in this area. with respect to the various tools that we have to go after those that are attacking our companies to extract trade secrets or data we have traditional law-enforcement tools as indicated a while back there executive action i have instituted the ability to impose sanctions on individuals or entities when
we have proof they have gone after u.s. companies are u.s. persons. we did not at our level have specific instructions of a specific cases but i did indicate to president xi we will apply those and whatever other tools we have been our toolkit to go after cybercriminals retrospectively or prospectively those are two rules generally directed at governments but entities or individuals we can identify. they are not unique to china. those search tools we will be using for cyberpersonals around the world. and president xi as they indicated to me with 1.
3 billion people he cannot guarantee the behavior every single person on chinese soil to acquire understand i cannot guarantee the actions of every single american but what i can guarantee and what i hope president xi will show me is that we're not sponsoring these activities and when it comes to our attention of non-governmental entities and individuals are engaging in this we take it seriously to enforce the law. the last one on the cyberissue is because this is a global problem and unlike other areas of international cooperation in the rules are not well developed.
it will be important for the united states and china working with other nations and the united nations and the private sector to start developing an architecture to govern behavior in cyberspace that is enforceable and clear purport doesn't mean we will prevent every cybercrime but serve as a template whereby countries know what the rules are and are held accountable and are able to join in the bill after the non-state actors in this area. with john boehner i just heard the news as i was coming out of the meeting. it took me by surprise. i took the time prior to this press conference to call him directly to your talk to him.
john boehner is a good man. a patriot, he cares deeply about the house and the institution in which she has served for a long time and his constituents and he cares about america. we obviously have had a lot of disagreements and politically at different ends of the spectrum but i will tell you he has always conducted himself with courtesy and civility and kept his word when he made a commitment and somebody has been gracious and most importantly somebody who understands bin government you don't get 100 percent of what you want but you have to work with people you
disagree with, sometimes strongly to do people's business. i will not prejudge to the next speaker will be. that will have to be worked through in the house. i will certainly reach out immediately to make the important issues that america faces but the one thing i will say is i hope there is a recognition on the part of the next speaker , something that john understood even though at times it was challenging to bring his caucus a long, we can have significant differences but that doesn't mean you shut down the
government or risk the full faith and had credit of the united states. you don't invite a potential financial crisis you pass transportation bills to do the basic work of governance that ensures the military is operating and the national parks are open and there is no weakness in that that is what government is in our democracy you don't get what you want 100 percent of the time. sometimes you take half or a quarter of that is something i have learned here in this office. i am looking forward to your working with the neck speaker in the meantime he will not leave for another 30 days so woefully he can get as much done as he
possibly can and i'll look forward to working with him on that. >> [speaking chinese] >>translator: talking about cybersecurity and the united states with president obama and i have on many occasions, with a long history exchange views on this it is fair to say every have consensus including a new consensus. overall united states is the strongest country in terms of cybercrime china is the world's biggest to have 600 million to cooperate
because of confrontation to carry out the expert levels of dialogue to strength than the corporation in many respects and ensure that cybersecurity into a new source instead of confrontation. add-on the u.s. side has concerns and disrespect they take seriously the u.s. provision of any information now and in the future through law-enforcement authorities to obtain communication on this matter
and appropriately address them. we have broad interest but we need to strengthen cooperation and nor should we politicize this issue. it is fair to say and going forward to reach a further agreement. thank you. >> speenineteen however the right to propose to raise a question. i have a a question for president obama i have noticed that last night
during the meeting with president xi jinping and the ceremony this morning reason they've made remarks to communicate the u.s. welcomes the rise of up prosperous china and for them to be playing a bigger role. could you please elaborate? what have you done to enable the region? we're more interested for the remainder of the office what you will do to reach this goal. >> first of all, united states provided a platform of all world war ii era that has been able to stabilize the way that china could
grow so rapidly. and we're very proud of the work that we did after world war ii to help rebuild asia and europe with the norms and the rules do facilitate global trade and to help maintain the peace. since i have been president my goal is to consist of the engaged with china in a way that is constructive to manage our differences and maximize opportunities for cooperation and repeated the
we have said it is in the interest of the united states to see a giant - - china pull people out of poverty and to expand its markets. because a successful and stable and peaceful china on a range of international challenges last night during our discussions i mentioned to president xi as powerful as the united states is, of the nature of the biggest challenges for terrorism those are not any thing that they can solve.
with the excellence of the of military to play a special role of a larger burden and we have to cooperate. as we continue to recognize if there is friendly competition and with the playing field on fairly a direction or not. with the desire to a couple of international norms and rules to recognize to update international institutions
for strength and power. but president xi mentioned and ident xi mentionedly and reform that we fully support and one to implement a greater voice for china and that institution reflective of that strength the same is true to go up to the united nations on the peacekeeping initiatives to protect its capabilities to reduce conflict and all those issues with science and technology brief thank it is there as long as there is reciprocity and transparency and fairness in the relationship. what i have said in the past due president xi that given
china's size of the recognized there is poverty but we cannot treat china as if it is still a pour developing country as it might have been 50 years ago. now is a powerhouse that has responsibilities. and expectations in terms to uphold international rules that may not have existed before and that is something china should welcome. that is part of the deal to be on the world stage as part of a big country, you have more to do. >> mr. president you said you did not want to prejudge the neck speaker but cad you tell us what the resignation
until about the republican party and durability to work with congress with the remainder of year term value try to negotiate -- to avert a government shutdown does this make this easier or harder and can you move forward with congress on priorities like planned parenthood and immigration and you cannot address with speaker boehner in his position and president xi, you experienced an economic downturn in your country with the stock market and investors globally are concerned about the actions you have taken to intervene with a currency exchange rate. what can you say today to restore confidence the interventions will not have a spillover effect into the economy into the future. thank you. >> i meant what i said. i will not prejudge how i can work with the neck speaker because i don't know
who that is and i suspect there will be a lot of debate inside the repblican caucus about who they want to leave them and and what direction. so it is not as if there is a multitude of various that the house republican congress has sought cooperation previously. i necessarily think there will be a big shift. but i do think that speaker boehner had a tough position because there were members and his caucus who sought compromise of any sort as weakness or betrayal. when you have divided government, a democracy,
compromise is unnecessary and i think speaker bather had difficulty persuading members of his caucus of that. hopefully they have learned some lessons from 2011. the last time they sought to introduce a non budget item into the budget discussions come at that time that was obamacare to shut down the government for that purpose. ended up hurting the economy and slowing it down. it cost a lot of hardship for a lot of people. it turns out government provides a lot of vital services. military provides protection , agencies keep our air cleaner and water cleaned and people every single day are hoping to respond to emergencies to
help get social security checks to help them deal with an ailing parent. when you insist lsi get my way on this issue, i will shut down all those services and by the way of these hard-working people without paychecks. that doesn't just church the economy in the abstract and hurts families and as i recall not good for the reputation of the republican party either. hopefully some lessons will be drawn i expect we will continue to have significant fights around issues of planned parenthood and issues like immigration. but perhaps the visit by the
holy father to congress may have changed hearts and minds i know speaker boehner was deeply moved by his encounter with pope francis per cry want to congratulate him by the way to facilitate that historic visit. if it meant a lot to him and his family. and i were just ask members to reflect on what his holiness said. not is the particular is but the general proposition that we should be open to each other and not demonize each other. to have a monopoly on the truth of what is right to show respect and regard for
>> i hope that we can get some things done before he steps down . >> thank you, madame reporter, for your interest in china's economy. since 2005 we adopted the exchange rate reform. by june this year, it has risen in value by more than 35% with the u.s. dollars last month. in fact, we are continue to go make reforms to the exchange rate. that increased the intensity for the markets to determine the ebbing change rate. due to the influence of factors such as the previous strengthening of the u.s.
dollars, the exchange rate after reform has experienced a certain degree of fluctuation, however there's no basis to have devaluation in the long run. at present the exchange rates is moving toward stability. going further, china will improve marketization and formation exchange rate and man taken basic stability in level. at present china is also under increasing pressure of economic downturn and fluctuations on the stock markets. challenges obviously increased, but what we are taking is proactive fiscal policy and prudence monitoring policy and described them as measure to
promote reform, restructuring, taking measures we managed to maintain a 7% in the first half of this year. last year 7.3% of growth rate and compared with the aggregate, the increase, the increase of the economy is equivalent to the size of a middle-sized economy. so for the first of this year, 7% and for the whole year i think it's expected at the same level. the chinese economy maintaining mid-to-high growth rate. our people income is still middle income, period. when countries are developing, this is a risk will there will be further development.
at present our per capita gdp only stands at 700 u.s. dollars and that is pretty much behind the united states. there is a big room for increase and we are now doing what we call reforms which is new type of industrialization organization and the agricultural. every year it will increase by 2%. now our urbanization ratio is expected to grow at 2% and that is equivalent to something like ten million people moving from rural area to the urban areas. at the same time we should not let the rural areas get backward and develop through internet and other policies, our
industrialization and urbanization will have a frog-leap development. now the chinese economy turning it from a speed-face growth to quality-face growth and we are moving from an export driven economy into an economy driven by expanded consumption and domestic demand. we call this a new -- for everybody provide healthy growth that strengthens confidence. thank you. and now, i would like to remind from the people daily of china to raise questions. >> thank you. i have a question to seek id
