U.S.-China Tariff Talks Pushed Back Until Late April

New York, NY, March 20, 2019-Trade talks between the U.S. and China have been pushed back until late April, according to the Wall Street Journal in an article title “High-Level U.S.-China Trade Talks to Resume in Final Push for Deal” by Bob Davis.

“U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin plan to fly to Beijing next week to meet with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He, Trump administration officials said. The following week, a Chinese delegation led by Mr. Liu is expected to continue talks in Washington, the officials said.

“People tracking the negotiations said the talks appear to be in their final stages, following a rocky patch after Chinese leaders were unnerved by President Trump’s decision to abruptly break off nuclear-disarmament talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in February.

“If the two sides continue to make progress, he said, they should be able to finish a trade deal by the end of April-or about one month later than previously expected.”
