U.S. trade representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will lead a U.S. delegation to China next week to resume trade negotiations. The White House confirmed the new round of talks in a statement late Tuesday. The negotiations will begin April 30 in Beijing, to be followed by a Chinese delegation, led by Liu He, that will travel to Washington for continued talks starting May 8. The subjects of next week's talks will include intellectual property, forced technology transfers, non-tariff barriers, services, purchases and enforcement, the White House said. There have been reports that the ongoing trade talks are in their final stages, and if a deal can be reached, a signing ceremony could be held in late May or early June, ending the yearlong tariff war between the world's two largest economies.
