China-U.S. trade talks possible

Bloomberg news agency says it has learned from top officials in Washington and Beijing that trade talks may soon resume between the United States and China.

There have been no negotiations for about three weeks as the two nations traded tariff threats and actual tariffs.

Canadian soybean and hog farmers have been side-swiped by Chinese tariffs on U.S. soybeans and pork that have depressed prices for those commodities.

So far there has been no agreement on when and where negotiations will resume.
