Trade negotiators from China and the U.S. are resuming talks to try to resolve their tariff dispute over China’s technology ambitions.
Representatives of both sides arrived Friday morning at a government guest house in western Beijing where they posed for photos but did not comment about the state of negotiations in front of reporters.
President Donald Trump expressed optimism about the talks last week, saying, “we’re getting very close.” The chief American envoy, Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, said this week questions about details and enforcement remained.
Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin attended a working dinner Thursday night with their Chinese counterpart, Vice Premier Liu He, who is to travel to Washington next week. Talks are due to last the entire day Friday.
