U.S., China Set Tentative Timeline for Next Round of Trade Talks

Apr 18 , 2019

The U.S. and China are planning two rounds of face-to-face meetings as they seek to wrap up a trade deal, with negotiators aiming for a signing ceremony in late May or early June, according to people familiar with the situation.

Under the tentative schedule, U.S. trade representative Robert Lighthizer is set to travel to Beijing the week of April 29, the people said, with Chinese envoy Liu He coming to Washington the week of May 6. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin also will be a part of the delegation to China, a senior administration official said.

President Trump said Wednesday that the negotiations were “moving along quite well.” The April-May itinerary for the talks loosely corresponds to a goal Mr. Trump outlined at a April 4 in the White House meeting with Mr. Liu.
