It has never been more important for the United States and China to work together on common goals, Bloomberg founder and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg told a small audience including Chinese government officials assembled at the Asia Society in New York Wednesday.
China is America's largest trading partner and the reverse is also true for China, making the countries intertwined on "climate change, trade and finance," Bloomberg said. He put a strong plug in for healthy competition to "get the best prices for consumers" and to create jobs globally.
