Chinese President Xi Visits US Amidst Accusations of Cyber Attacks by Both Countries

BRICSPOST provides this preview of the visit of Chinese President Xi to the US. Below are some quotes from the article.

"Chinese President Xi Jinping will address members of a business roundtable in Seattle during his upcoming US visit. Xi’s trip will begin with meetings with high-tech executives in Seattle on Wednesday."

"Thirty chief executives of prominent US and Chinese companies will attend the event. These include CEOs of Apple, Microsoft, IBM, Boeing, Amazon and Chinese firms Alibaba, Tencent and Baidu among others.
With global markets unsettled by China’s slowing growth, Xi will seek to assure the representatives of US and Chinese big business of China’s commitment to pushing through further reforms."

"China and the US are locked in competition over trade and over military and diplomatic influence in the region.
China has repeatedly accused the US of trying to profit from the historical maritime territorial disputes between China and some of its neighbors.
In May last year, the United States charged five Chinese military officers with hacking American firms, prompting China to shut down a bilateral working group on cybersecurity.
China has denied these accusations made by Washington.
“In terms of both military and political intelligence and trade secrets, the United States is the world’s No.1 cyber thief and its spying force should be indicted,” Sun Jianguo, deputy chief of General Staff of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army, said.
