In an emotional farewell speech after the confirmation vote, Baucus promised to build a stronger relationship with China. "The relationship between the U.S. and China is one of the most important in the world, and we, both China and the United States, need to get it right," he said.

China's official Xinhua news agency largely welcomed Baucus' confirmation, describing him in a commentary as a "well-received candidate", but said more political trust was needed between Washington and Beijing.

"The bilateral relationship will be more smooth and fruitful when China does not feel the U.S. threat of containment and when the U.S. finds no ulterior Chinese motive to undermine its global leadership," Xinhua said.
