BROADER PRIORITIES: As President Hu Jintao of China visits Washington, U.S. companies want China to let its currency's value rise freely, to make U.S. goods cheaper overseas. They're also stressing other goals: Stopping the theft of intellectual property. And getting a fair chance to win government contracts.

POINT OF CONTENTION: U.S. companies are bristling at a Chinese policy that limits Beijing's purchases of foreign products to those designed in China.

OUTLOOK: No big breakthroughs are expected. U.S. companies hope the meetings will make it easier to reach long-term solutions to the major trade disputes dividing the world's two largest economies.
