Chinese and the U.S. negotiators will next week hold their first face-to-face talks since Presidents Xi Jinping and Donald Trump agreed on a truce to their trade war last month, the Ministry of Commerce said Friday, in a sign that working-level negotiations are gaining traction.

Deputy U.S. Trade Representative Jeffrey Gerrish will lead a delegation to China on Monday and Tuesday, with the goal of having “positive and constructive discussions with the Chinese side’s working group on implementing the important agreements reached by the two countries’ heads of state at their Argentina meeting,” an unnamed ministry spokesperson said in a statement (link in Chinese).
