The decision to hold this week's talks at a deputy minister level reflects the need to work out technical details before higher-level officials make "hard political decisions on major issues", said Tu Xinquan, director of the China Institute for World Trade Organization Studies at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing. The adviser says that with the Chinese economy slipping due to the USA tariffs, it will put pressure on the country to agree to a trade deal with the Trump administration.

In a separate statement on Friday, USTR said the delegation will also include Under Secretaries from the US Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Energy and Treasury, as well as senior officials from those agencies and the White House.

United States and China have exchanged tit-for-tat tariffs on more than $300 billion worth of goods in total two-way trade.

It will be the first face-to-face meeting since the two countries agreed not to impose new tariffs for 90 days.
