American envoys are due in Beijing for talks Monday in a tariff battle over Chinese technology ambitions.

A US government delegation will visit China next week for the first face-to-face talks since US President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping agreed on a temporary truce in the trade war, Beijing has confirmed.

Deputy US Trade Representative Jeffrey Gerrish will lead the Washington delegation and will discuss "implementing the important consensus" reached by Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping at the sidelines of the G20 summit in Argentina previous year, China´s commerce ministry said.

Bautista Agut battles back to send Djokovic crashing out
I care playing with him more than with anybody else, so that's why it took a lot out of me emotionally. A fired-up Djokovic smashed his racquet after dropping his serve in the eighth game of the second set.

Trump temporarily suspended the planned increase in tariffs from 10 per cent to 25 per cent on Chinese goods worth $200 billion with a warning he would go ahead with the plan if a trade agreement was not sealed before the 90-day deadline.

Despite its softening economy, China will likely find it hard to comply with USA demands to slow its economic ambitions. But they reject pressure to scrap technology initiatives they see as a path to prosperity and global influence. "I think that there are a heck of a lot of USA companies that have a lot of sales in China that are basically going to be watching their earnings be downgraded next year until we get a deal with China".

Both governments face economic pressure to reach a settlement. Auto sales have dropped for the first time since 1990.

Kevin Hassett, chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, said the contentious U.S. Vice-ministers from the two countries talked on the phone yesterday, and will discuss how to implement the consensus reached in Argentina when the two leaders meet in Beijing, it said. "China wants the trade war to end, and they are offering signs of that", said a United States source familiar with the discussions.

As Chinese tariffs take a bigger bite out of profits, US manufacturers with operations there are scrambling to find alternatives.

The office of the United States Trade Representative also released a statement Friday announcing the delegation that would be representing the US. They complain China's companies are treated unfairly in national security reviews of proposed corporate acquisitions, though nearly all deals are approved unchanged.
