USTR Tai expects to meet Chinese counterpart soon

United States Trade Representative Katherine Tai said on Wednesday she expects to hold a meeting with her counterpart from China, Vice-Premier Liu He, "in the near term."

Speaking at a conference organized by the Financial Times, Tai noted that "a lot of this is going to hinge on the conversations that we have with China, and our assessment of the effectiveness of the US-China trade and economic agreement... My instruction to everyone who works at USTR, and to those who care about what we do here, is just stay light on your feet always," Tai concluded.

The statement comes a month after Tai argued that the US-China meeting on trade relations would happen "when the time is right."
