Chinese minister of commerce, PBOC chief to join trade talks with U.S.

Top U.S. and Chinese trade and economic officials will meet in Washington on Thursday and Friday to try to end a 15-month trade war that is slowing the global economy and threatening to upend decades-old trade systems. Chinese Vice Premier Liu He, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are expected to take part in the talks.
