U.S.-China Trade Deal Is Getting Closer, Lighthizer Says

Mar 13 , 2019

Negotiations to settle the trade battle between the U.S. and China are intensifying, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer told a Senate panel Tuesday, with both sides holding frequent talks aiming to clear the last stumbling blocks.

“Our hope is we are in the final weeks of an agreement,” Mr. Lighthizer told the Senate Finance Committee.

Both sides are seeking to resolve remaining issues before Chinese President Xi Jinping completes a European trip, which starts around March 21 and is set to include meetings in Italy, France and other countries, according to people close to the talks. That would allow Mr. Xi to tack on a stop at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida in late March or early April to sign a trade pact, the people said.
