(Yicai Global) Jan. 4 -- China and the United States will hold vice-ministerial-level trade talks next week in Beijing, the commerce ministry said in a statement.

A delegation, led by Deputy US Trade Representative Jeffrey D. Gerrish, will visit Beijing from Jan. 7 to Jan. 8 to hold talks with Chinese officials on trade issues.

The two sides will conduct constructive discussions on implementing the important consensus reached between President Xi Jinping and his US counterpart, Donald Trump, on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Buenos Aires on Dec 1.

The two leaders have agreed to continue trade negotiations, stop the imposition of new tariffs and exchange visits at an appropriate time. Since then, frequent conversations on trade issues have been conducted.
