Fu recalled her visit to the United States in late 2016 as an NPC delegation member, saying such exchanges are mutually beneficial and are conducted on an equal basis.

"We should deal with the trade deficit through expanding the trade volume," the spokesperson said, noting many U.S. lawmakers were concerned about the issue.

Fu also stressed that adherence to the one-China principle is an important basis for the stable development of China-U.S. relations.

The NPC's foreign exchanges serve China's overall diplomacy and are tasked with implementing the consensus reached by state leaders, Fu said, adding that the exchanges will help boost foreign lawmakers' understanding of China.

China's success of development path and its prosperity are assured by the Communist Party of China's leadership and the people's congress system, the spokesperson said.
