United States and Chinese officials expressed hope on Monday (Feb 11) that this week's round of talks would bring them closer to easing their seven-month trade war.
The comments came as the third round of trade negotiations were set to resume in Beijing to avert more than doubling tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese imports.
Top US officials arrived in the Chinese capital on Tuesday ahead of high-level trade talks as the world's two largest economies attempt to hammer out a deal ahead of a March 1 deadline and avoid another escalation of tariffs.
"We're doing very well over in China", Trump added.
A March 1 deadline is looming for China and the U.S. to strike an accord before Washington hikes tariffs on Chinese goods to 25%. While those purchases will provide relief to USA farmers, there has been no breakthrough on the structural issues separating the two nations, such as industrial policy, government subsidies, protection of intellectual property or forced transfers of technology.
