Washington, DC — Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement after his meeting with Chinese President Hu Jintao:
“I was pleased to welcome President Hu to our country and share a productive meeting. The relationship between our countries is important and we share deep economic ties. Today I raised the issues of trade, Chinese currency and the importance of increasing Chinese investment and tourism in Nevada and across America. We discussed how we have found common ground in Nevada on our shared interest in renewable energy projects.
