U.S.–China Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade (JCCT)

The JCCT, established in 1983, is a forum for high-level dialogue on bilateral trade issues between the United States and China. From its inception until 2004, the JCCT was co-chaired by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce and China's Minister of Commerce. Following the December 2003 meeting of President Bush and Premier Wen the two sides agreed the Commission would be co-chaired on the U.S. side by two cabinet officials (the Secretary of Commerce and the U.S. Trade Representative) and, on the Chinese side, by the Vice Premier responsible for foreign trade. The JCCT also includes 16 active working groups covering a wide variety of issues and industries including, intellectual property, environment, information industry, pharmaceutical and medical devices, statistics, commercial law, and trade and investment, among others.
