U.S. Trade Delegation to Visit Beijing on March 28-29, China Says

An American delegation led by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer will visit Beijing on March 28-29 for trade negotiations, China's Ministry of Commerce announced Thursday.

China’s Vice Premier Liu He will head to Washington in early April for another round of the trade talks, Gao Feng, the ministry’s spokesperson, said at a regular briefing.

U.S. President Donald Trump delayed raising punitive tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports, after important progress was made in negotiations late last month in Washington.

However, the two sides are at loggerheads over an enforcement mechanism the U.S. is trying to impose on China to ensure Beijing live up to its promises. Trump has also said he will not remove tariffs on China until the country proves its compliances with any trade agreement.
