U.S., China Tentatively Move to Revive Trade Talks

Jul 09, 2019

President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed at the Group of 20 leading economies meeting in Osaka, Japan, in June to formally resume talks. Yet people following the process note that the issues that snagged talks two months ago remain.
