U.S. Picks Up Trade Talks With China Next Week

Washington, DC, July 24, 2019--A U.S. delegation is scheduled to travel to China for trade talks next week, according to a senior administration official. These would be the first face-to-face talks since the G-20 summit meeting in Japan last month.

The last round of in-person negotiations between the two countries took place in Washington in May and ended in a stalemate.

Both U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will travel to Shanghai for meetings with China’s Vice Premier Liu.

Before talks can move forward on tariffs, the U.S. wants China to agree to buy more agricultural products.
