US urges China over domestic spending

US Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner has called on China to rely more on its own spending and less on exports.

"The challenge is to lay the foundation for a new growth model, driven more by domestic demand," he advised his Chinese counterparts.

His comments came at the start of a two-day bilateral trade meeting in Washington.
