U.S. China trade talks resume

Second-tier Chinese officials are in Washington, D.C. today preparing the way for a meeting of top-level trade officials to come at an indefinite date later.

And some Chinese officials are touring U.S. farms, said Agriculture Department Secretary Sonny Perdue. He said it’s an effort to “build goodwill,” but did not offer any details about the trip.

He said he doesn’t know if Beijing plans to make an announcement about additional purchases of U.S. farm goods during the visit.
