Donald Trump's election as president of the Untied States means change is coming to the US-China relationship, but with change comes opportunity.
That was the message speakers delivered at a China-US Chamber of Commerce event called Chinese-US Relations under a Trump presidency in New York on Friday.
Zhiwen Wang, chairman of the China-US Chamber of Commerce (CUSCC), said that the Clinton-Trump contest provided a valuable lesson in American politics for China.
"Trump winning will have substantial impact on the US-China trade relationship," he said. Because Trump is a businessman, Wang appreciates his ability to operate businesses, and "this will help to succeed in the White House", he added.
Wang said President Xi Jinping highly values the US-China relationship. "He believes it can be a win-win if the US and China can deliver a strategic relationship," he said.
