He said it is his first time to talk with Paulson after taking office and as the special representative of President Hu Jintao, adding he is willing to have "an in-depth exchange of views" with Paulson, who is also special representative of US President George W. Bush.
Paulson said he looked forward to working closely with Wang on the preparations for new round of SED.
Paulson, who arrived in Beijing earlier Wednesday morning for a two-day visit, is scheduled to meet President Hu, Premier Wen Jiabao and other senior officials.
China and the United States had agreed to hold their fourth round of the SED at Washington in June this year. Wang and Paulson are expected to jointly preside over the dialogue.
