WASHINGTON: The trade representative for the United States says that, because of the recession, China has determined it should become less dependent on exports and stimulate demand in its domestic market.

Trade representative Ron Kirk says the Obama administration sees in China's point of view what he calls "a great opportunity for American farmers, ranchers, producers and workers."

President Barack Obama's top trade adviser, Kirk spoke Tuesday to the U.S.-China Business Council. He says that improved relations with China will depend, in part, on job-creating access to China's markets for U.S. goods, services and investment.
