China and the United States vowed to continue expanding their people-to-people exchanges in a bid to build a new model of bilateral relationships, according to a consensus reached by Chinese President Xi Jinping and his US counterpart Barack Obama at an informal summit in Sunnylands, California, back in June.

And on Thursday in Washington, visiting Chinese Vice-Premier Liu Yandong and US Secretary of State John Kerry renewed the Memorandum of Understanding on China-US High-Level Consultation on People-to-People Exchange on behalf of their respective governments.

The CPE was launched in 2010 by Liu and then US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton after Obama's trip to China in November 2009.
