China says trade talks with US 'progressing well'

The Commerce Ministry in Beijing stated on Thursday that its negotiating team is maintaining close communication with United States counterparts and that trade talks are "progressing well."

The ministry added that discussions will proceed according to plan, and announced a telephone call between lead trade negotiators will take place on Friday.

Yesterday, the White House said the US team still wants to sign a phase one trade deal with China in November, despite the cancellation of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Chile, where the signing was planned.
