The SED will be held from June 17 to 18 at US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, about 30-minute drive from Washington.

The meeting will be co-chaired by Wang as special representative of Chinese President Hu Jintao, and US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, as special representative of US President George W. Bush.

Wang's entourage includes ministers and other senior officials from related departments of China's State Council.

Jointly launched by President Hu and President Bush in September, 2006, the dialogue is held twice a year, alternating between the two countries.

The previous meeting was held in December 2007 in Beijing, China.
