The United States and China are set to hold the next round of trade talks on October 10 in Washington, D.C.

Chinese Vice Minister of Commerce and Deputy China International Trade Representative Wang Shouwen and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He will travel to Washington to meet with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

Deputy-level meetings will take place in the preceding week, which is during China’s Golden Week holiday that celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Communist party from October 1 – 7.

The U.S. on October 1 raised existing tariffs on around $250 billion of Chinese imports to 30 percent from 25 percent.
