WASHINGTON, Dec 19 (Reuters) - China told U.S. trade
negotiators in Washington on Wednesday that Beijing would do
more to protect intellectual property rights and combat piracy
by promoting the use of legal software, China's commerce
minister told reporters.
Minister Chen Deming said that while Beijing agreed to
address those longstanding U.S. complaints, American officials
at Wednesday's U.S-China Joint Commission on Commerce and
Trade (JCCT) meeting promised to address China's demands for
greater exports of U.S. high-technology products and to
facilitate more Chinese investment in the United States.
