China, US Vice Ministers to hold trade talks starting Monday

The US and China will reopen trade negotiations next week, when a US trade delegation will visit China, unnamed sources tell Bloomberg.

China said a US delegation will visit next week for trade talks, confirming the two sides will have their first face-to-face negotiation since President Donald Trump and his counterpart Xi Jinping agreed to a 90-day truce in their trade war last month.

Deputy US Trade Representative Jeffrey Gerrish will lead the US delegation for the talks on Jan. 7 and 8, the Commerce Ministry said in a statement.

Bloomberg News reported earlier that US officials would head to Beijing the week of Jan. 7.
