(Yicai Global) Jan. 18 - Chinese Vice Premier Liu He will visit the U.S. from January 30 to 31 for further economic and trade talks, said Ministry of Commerce spokesperson Gao Feng during a press conference on Thursday.  

Liu was invited by U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, and the two sides will work to facilitate the implementation of the two presidents' consensus, Gao said. 

The latest round of trade talks between the two countries was a vice-ministerial level meeting held in Beijing January 7-9.

That was the first face-to-face meeting between the two sides since Chinese President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Donald Trump agreed not to impose new tariffs for a period of 90 days during the G20 summit in Argentina in December. 

Since then, the U.S. has agreed not to levy new tariffs on Chinese products until March, while China has suspended additional tariffs on U.S. vehicles.
