Representatives from the United States and China are starting talks in Washington next Thursday about a solution to the ongoing trade dispute. Earlier in the day, the US Chamber of Commerce chief executive Tom Donohue said Friday’s first meeting would take place, but this was contradicted by the US Department of Commerce.
Earlier it was announced that somewhere midway through this month preliminary talks would take place between representatives of China and the US. A precise date was not specified.
At the highest level, top negotiator Robert Lighthizer, US Finance Minister Steven Mnuchin and Chinese Deputy Prime Minister Liu He are expected to continue to talk in October.
