China has invited Top US trade negotiators for a new round of face-to-face talks in Beijing in its continued efforts to strike a limited deal, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.
The report said Chinese Vice Premier Liu He invited US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin for a meeting in Beijing, adding that Beijing hopes the round of talks can take place before next Thursday’s Thanksgiving Holiday in the United States.
US officials have indicated they would be willing to meet in person but have not committed to a date.
The US negotiators are reluctant to travel for the talks unless China makes it clear it would make commitments on intellectual property protection, forced technology transfers and agricultural purchases, the WS-J said.
