(Bloomberg) — The U.S. and China launched high-level trade talks in Washington with little indication that Beijing will bend to U.S. demands to deepen economic reforms.

Talks between senior officials from the two sides, led by U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He, at the White House complex in Washington that began on Wednesday morning were expected to be followed by a working dinner. Negotiations will resume Thursday, when President Donald Trump is expected to meet Liu.
