Online Survey Results on Geithner’s Visit

Huanqiu published its online survey results on US Treasury Secretary Geithner’s fist visit to China: 83 percent believe that the purpose of Geithner’s China visit was to ask China to buy more US debt; 49 percent feel that China will not purchase more debt; 63.3 percent believe the US relies on China.

Huanqiu also listed the following five requests made to Geithner from its online users. They are: keep US currency stable and stop pressing China on the currency issue; lift the sanction on exporting high-tech to China; ensure safe investment in the US; recognize China’s (world) market economy status; and cancel US trade protection clause against China.
