"A trade war would not benefit either country or either country's people, you could say it would have no advantage whatsoever," the mMinister told reporters on the sidelines of the annual parliament session in Beijing.

"Many American and western friends think that China can't live without the United States but that's only half true."

"At the same time, the United States can't live without China," Zhong said, adding that in the past ten years, the growth of U.S. exports to China has outpaced the growth of Chinese exports to the United States.

Zhong said that he looked forward to meeting his U.S. counterpart Wilbur Ross.
