Top US officials will travel to Shanghai next week in a bid to reignite talks to resolve the trade dispute between the world’s two largest economies, said the Financial Times.


The White House said that Robert Lighthizer, the US trade representative, and Steven Mnuchin, the US Treasury secretary, would continue the negotiations starting July 30 with Vice Premier Liu He leading the talks for China.


The resumption of face-to-face negotiations between Washington and Beijing has been widely expected after Donald Trump, the US president, and Xi Jinping, the Chinese president, struck a truce at the G20 summit in Japan last month, refraining from further tariffs being put into effect and setting the stage for more discussions.
