Chinese and US negotiators will hold a new round of negotiations in Washington in early October, the Commerce Ministry said Thursday.
The announcement followed an earlier call between Chinese Vice Premier Liu He, US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and US Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin, the Commerce Ministry said in a statement on its website.
Chinese central bank governor Yi Gang also took part in the contacts.
Trade teams from the two countries will hold consultations in mid-September, the ministry said, adding that the two sides agreed to take effective measures to create a favorable atmosphere.
The negotiations, originally scheduled for this month, were postponed after the two countries exchanged new tariffs on September 1.
