U.S., Chinese trade officials hold trade talks in Washington
Trade officials from the U.S. and China meet in Washington on Thursday after a heated exchange of trade blows to settle things once and for all and negotiate for possible trade deals which will be taken up during ministerial-level trade talks in October.
The negotiations between the two conflicting countries are expected to yield positive agreements that will set the high-level talks next month which will determine the trade partnership between the two largest economies of the world.
Vice Finance Minister Liao Min headed the Chinese delegation who will be meeting with Deputy United States Trade Representative Jeffrey Gerrish.
The talks are expected to shed light on trade problems between China and the U.S. in terms of agricultural sector and technology firms.
The October high-level talks will cover currency issues which will be dealt with by U.S. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin together with Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He.
