China's Economy Czar Going to Washington for Trade Talks

Monday, 18 February 2019 11:38 PM

BEIJING (AP) — China's economy czar is going to Washington for talks Thursday and Friday aimed at ending a tariff war over Beijing's technology ambitions.

Tuesday's announcement, carried by the official Xinhua News Agency, follows talks last week in Beijing that a U.S. envoy said "made headway" on key issues.

Negotiators face a March 2 deadline for planned American tariff hikes on $200 billion of Chinese imports to take effect.

Xinhua said Vice Premier Liu He will hold talks with the top U.S. trade envoy, Robert Lighthizer, and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
