WASHINGTON: China and the US held a virtual meeting on Saturday regarding the two countries’ fraught trade ties, after a lengthy break in negotiations.
China’s top trade negotiator Liu He called US trade representative Katherine Tai to discuss the “Phase 1” trade deal, negotiated under the Trump administration, according to the China’s commerce ministry.
Both sides “conducted pragmatic and constructive exchanges”, the ministry said. Tai had said this week that she plans frank talks with officials in Beijing about a deal aimed at resolving a tariff war.
