According to the New York Times, the midlevel US trade negotiators and their Chinese counterparts concluded trade talks today (Wednesday, January 10th).
No new concerns were mentioned in the NYT article. The US is still concerned about China’s purchase of US agricultural, energy and manufacturing products; forced technology transfer; intellectual property protection and concerns regarding China’s 2025 initiative.
The next step is to report the results of their talks to President Trump. As you are aware, the imposition of List 3 tariff increases to 25% (from the current 10%) occurs on March 1st (a 90-day extension announced during the “truce” at the G-20 summit in December 2018).
