US, China set to sign trade deal as soon as May - report

Washington and Beijing might sign the new trade deal as soon as May, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday, citing a source familiar with the matter. The United States and China have scheduled a number of face-to-face meetings that are set to take place at the end of April and early May, according to the report.

US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer (pictured left) is reportedly due to travel to Beijing on April 29 for the next round of negotiations while his Chinese counterpart Liu He (pictured center) is expected to visit Washington on May 6. The source stated that those meetings might be final before both sides decide to seal the deal.

Yesterday, Director of the United States National Economic Council Larry Kudlow stated that the trade talks between China and the US are going well.
