Four high-ranking sources in the US government told Reuters about large-scale concessions made by China in the technology sector during trade negotiations with the United States. In particular, this is a move away from forcing US companies operating in China to transfer technology. Sources noted that, compared with the proposals of the Chinese side a month ago, their new version is a significant step forward. On March 28, the representatives of the United States and China continued to work on the text of the trade agreement. According to the representative of the Ministry of Commerce of China, Gao Feng, in recent weeks they have managed to make significant progress in this direction, but there is still much to be done and agreed upon. Another round of discussions will be held in Washington next week.
