On 19 March 2013, Xi Jinping has his first high-level meeting with US representative since he was confirmed as the president of China. He said the two countries should "work together to reduce barriers to trade and investment." Mr Lew, from USA said that as the world's two largest economies, the US and China had "a special responsibility to maintain strong, stable and sustained growth in the world". 

US and China has been two of IKEA biggest markets for a long time. This move will narrow down the trade gap between two countries. Stronger bond between the two countries will make it easier for IKEA to import goods into US from China (IKEA's biggest manufacturing country), and also bring high-skilled employees from US to China.
