Join Secretary Geithner And Clinton As They Deliver Remarks At The Opening Of The U.S.-China Strategic Dialogue

Because you wouldn't want to miss lots of empty words being delivered with the appropriate dose of pathos (or is that pathology?) and hypocrisy.

From the Department of Truth:

Join Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton as she delivers remarks at the Opening Session of the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue (S&ED) on May 9, 2011. Secretary Clinton and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner will be joined for the Dialogue by the Chinese Co-Chairs, Vice Premier Wang Qishan, and State Councilor Dai Bingguo, for the third joint meeting of the U.S.-China S&ED in Washington, D.C., May 9-10.

And from Reuters on Geithner's prepared remarks:

U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said on Monday that China needs to foster more domestic demand rather than rely on exports for its future growth to keep a global recovery going.

In prepared remarks for delivery at the start of two days of a Strategic and Economic Dialogue, Geithner said both countries face challenges and Washington must complete long-term fiscal reforms to force it to live within its means.

"In China ... the challenge is to lay the foundation for a new growth model, driven more by domestic demand, with a more market-based economy, and a more sophisticated financial system," Geithner said.
