China said it would push ahead with "reform and opening up" of its economy at the opening session of the first US-China strategic economic dialogue in Beijing Thursday, the Financial Times reported.

US Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson welcomed the commitment to continued reforms, saying that the economic dialogue had to overcome the skeptics by producing "tangible results".
