Sinotech: U.S. and Chinese Negotiations Make First Direct Contact Since G-20
On July 9, U.S. and Chinese negotiators held a phone call in the first instance of direct bilateral contact since President Trump announced the resumption of trade negotiations at the G-20 summit in Osaka. U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin represented the United States, and Vice Premier Liu He and Commerce Minister Zhong Shan represented China. A former Chinese official, quoted by Bloomberg, stressed that “a phone call is not an official restart of negotiations but rather a preparation.” As both U.S. and Chinese officials have announced, trade talks are set to formally resume soon, though neither side has released further details. White House trade adviser Peter Navarro did reveal that Lighthizer and Mnuchin will travel to Beijing “in the very near future.”
