BEIJING, Nov. 4 (Xinhua) -- Despite the upcoming U.S. presidential polls and the national congress of China's Communist Party, analysts say bilateral relations will continue to go ahead amid cooperation, competition and coordination.
China, the world's largest developing country and the United States, the most developed power, have every reason to be in the spotlight in November with their political events.
Voting will officially start on Tuesday in the United States as President Barack Obama, who is seeking a second term, is in a tight race with his Republican rival Mitt Romney.
The 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) will open on Thursday. With the elections of a new CPC Central Committee and a new Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the meeting is expected to make strategic arrangements for the overall advancement of China's reform and opening up.
"Over the past four years, Sino-U.S.relations have moved forward in a basically stable way with the deepening of bilateral cooperation," said Wu Baiyi, a Chinese researcher in international relations at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS).
The progress can be seen through mutual visits of the presidents of the two countries, rounds of fruitful strategic and economic dialogue, and military exchanges, Wu told Xinhua.
