(This Week In Business) - Boston College Associate Professor Jun Qian shares insights into the US-China summit this week, and what it might mean to New England and how it is playing back in China.

China's president told Americans this week that it's important for our countries to work together to help achieve a full recovery of the world economy.
         
Ju Hintao calls his country an economic partner, and not a threat to the United States.
          
This is the 8th time President Obama has met with China's President, the first full-on summit at the White House, and it comes as the two countries are in friction over everything from the value of Chinese money, and massive Chinese piracy of software and technology, to human rights for Chinese dissidents.
         
One area where things are a little better: the massive trade imbalance, and that's about to get nearly $50 billion better.
