Chinese Vice-Premier Liu He has accepted an invitation to lead a delegation to Washington at the end of this month with the purpose of reaching a deal to end the trade war, according to a source who has been briefed on the arrangement.
Liu, who is overseeing China’s trade negotiations with the United States, is expected to meet US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin during the two-day visit, the source said.
The trip will take place on January 30 and 31, dates first reported by Bloomberg and The Wall Street Journal. Mnuchin subsequently confirmed in an interview that he expected Liu to visit Washington this month. The visit comes on the heels of 2½ days of “vice-ministerial” negotiations in Beijing.
