During the talks, the two sides engaged in frank discussions concerning the development of global and bilateral economic policy, the WTO multilateral trade system, plant and animal quarantines, intellectual property rights protection, medicine and medical materials, technological trade barriers, investments, government purchases, energy policy and related issues.
