- Story Text:Chairman of the US-China Business Council, Evan Greenberg, attended a meeting with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on Thursday (October 17).
The meeting came as Chinese importers stepped up purchases of U.S. agricultural goods ahead of high-level trade talks in Washington, U.S. data showed last week.
U.S. and Chinese trade negotiators are working on nailing down a Phase 1 trade deal text in Washington DC for their presidents to sign next month, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Wednesday (October 16), adding he was prepared to travel to Beijing for more meetings if necessary.
The Chinese Commerce Ministry said on Thursday that Beijing hopes reach a phased agreement with the United States and cancel tariffs as soon as possible, adding that a trade war will bear no winners.
