US-China deal includes IP protections - report

Phase one trade deal between the United States and China restricts Chinese companies' practices that compromise US technology secrets, the New York Times reported.

The country has committed to punishing its companies that steal corporate trade secrets, a practice American officials say was used to influence the growth of the Chinese technology business.

The phase one trade deal between the two nations is set to be signed at the White House on Wednesday.
